However, their loyalties to the popular and eccentric English teacher Hector and the dry, prim history mistress Mrs Linnott are torn when a young, highly driven and results orientated supply teacher, Mr Irwin, is recruited to ensure they achieve the grades that the Headmaster is so desperate for them to realise.
