7 reasons we will miss the show

All good things come to an end, so they say, and the finale came with a heavy slab of emotion, so a box of tissues was a must.

James Brinsford, Metro, 22nd October 2014

Although creator and star Jack Whitehall hasn't confirmed whether school's out forever at Abbey Grove, tonight's series three finale ties things up nicely just in case. With their GCSEs over, Form K have some important decisions to make about their futures, as does their tutor Alfie (Whitehall), who has decided that he can't carry on at the school without them. With headteacher Fraser (Mathew Horne) in bits at his resignation, can Gulliver and Form K get Alfie to the prom and perhaps back to the classroom?
