A popular member of staff has died. Unfortunately, actually getting him to his maker is a task that will take every inch of Mr Church's, Mr Gunn's and Mr Barber's ingenuity (plus a wheelie bin and a ride-on lawnmower).

Meanwhile, when disabled pupil Dean (guest star Jack Carroll) starts at the school, Miss Postern's 'Stand Up To Bullies' campaign seems to have found its poster boy. But things aren't always as they seem, and as Miss Postern and Mr Martin soon discover, sometimes not even rap therapy can solve the world's problems.
