Series 4, Episode 4 - Trailblazers

Bad Education. Image shows left to right: Jinx (Laura Marcus), Stephen (Layton Williams), Usma (Asha Hassan)
After Class K make Stephen feel old and irrelevant on his birthday, he goes to ridiculous lengths to prove he is still a trailblazer.

Further details

It's Stephen's birthday, and to combat being made to feel old and irrelevant, he tries to gain favour of the woke favourites of Ms Hoburn, the darling Class A, who also happen to have a big social media following. Taking to the extreme, Stephen ransacks the library in a desperate bid to show Class A he's one of them.

Meanwhile, Mitchell is outraged at his paycheck, and teams up with Blessing to put together a catering money making scheme and bring in some extra cash. The new business venture soon turns south once Ms Hoburn clocks on, and results in a terrible incident with a drone and Chicken satay.
