BBC has posted a teaser of the series that reads:

"Time has looked at your faces now. And time never forgets..."
What if your planet was massacred and you were the sole survivor?
What if a legendary figure out of space and time found you a place to hide?
But what if the things that want to kill you have tracked you down?
And worst of all, what if you haven't studied for your A-Levels...?

"Class" will explore the adventures of four students of Coal Hill School, London, who have "hidden secrets and desires."

Inquisitr has stated that the primary cast of "Class" consists of newcomers Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins, Greg Austin and Vivian Oprah. Katherine Kelly of "Happy Valley" fame will play their teacher. Steven Moffat, who has produced several prominent TV series, including "Doctor Who" and "Sherlock," will also serve as the producer of the "Class."
