Series 1, Episode 4 - Sack Race

When PE teacher Mr Philips gives Latrina a grubby old vest that she believes belonged to Bromwell High's famous sporting alumnus Leroy Thomas, she immediately displays an astonishing, and not unsurprising, athletic prowess.

Further details

When an OFSTED inspector arrives with the outright intention of sacking either one of the teachers or Iqbal and Mr Bibby, it is Philips whose job is on the line. His only hope of saving his career is to find an athlete with Olympic potential, but this will leave Iqbal and his sidekick in the lurch.

Can Latrina pull off a record-breaking display of athletics and save Philips' skin? And if she does, what will happen to the maverick headmaster and Mr Bibby?
