Alfie is shocked by the arrival of Mr Schwimer - a new teacher at Abbey Grove, and even more shocked to learn that Schwimer will be taking over his own class.

Desperately upset that his class seem to be having a great time and actually learning proper, real life GCSE history with their new teacher, Alfie is even more unhappy when he finds out which class Miss Pickwell has given him instead.

With Headmaster Fraser and Miss Gulliver both increasingly charmed by Mr Schwimer it is left to Alfie and Jing to uncover the truth behind this American imposter.
