It's a fresh start for Will McKenzie as he joins his new sixth form college. Will previously went to a private school, but since his dad walked out on his mum he's had to downgrade to the local comprehensive.

In-Depth Episode Synopsis

Warning: the below synopsis may contain spoilers

If life wasn't already tough enough, Will quickly makes enemies of his psychotic head of sixth and the school nut case. In a vain effort to fit in, Will soon attaches himself to a fairly average group - Simon, Jay and Neil - and tags along with them as they attempt to get served at a pub for the first time ever.
