Series 4, Episode 6 - School Play

Bad Education. Image shows left to right: Harrison (Bobby Johnson), Stephen (Layton Williams), Jinx (Laura Marcus)
Stephen wants to turn the school play into a showcase for his talents to impress an agent, but Hoburn has more sinister plans to use it as a way of closing the school down.

Further details

It's the night of the school play, and Class K become suspicious at Ms Hoburn's enthusiasm behind the performance. After eavesdropping, they learn Ms Hoburn has a master plan that will see Abbey Grove closed down for good. As they stumble through the beleaguered performance, which sees Stephen play almost all the roles, the class devise a plan to stop Ms Hoburn devious antics and save the school.

All hope seems lost when Stephen becomes injured, but Class K have one final trick in their sleeve as the paramedics arrive, and that might be just what they need.


Jack Whitehall is credited twice for his writing contribution to this episode.
