Mr Gunn discovers that one of his pupils may well be his son. Desperate to be the father the boy never had (apart from his current father) Gunn sets about trying to make his boy's school days as joyous as possible, while Mr Church and Mr Martin battle to make sure Gunn's hot gossip is spread far and wide.

A meeting with their pupils' parents also presents challenges for the rest of the Greybridge staff. Miss Postern is struggling to stop everyone eyeing her cleavage; Ms Baron is attempting to dodge the event altogether; Mr Barber is desperate to master his errant leaf blower and everyone's trying to avoid missing an episode of The Great British Bake Off.
