Series 1, Episode 3
The girls have been up all night cramming for a big exam. Some (Michelle and Erin) haven't studied for it enough whilst Clare's over-studied, leaving herself completely sleep deprived and slightly manic. Everyone is convinced they're going to fail. So when a distinctly dubious opportunity presents itself to get out of the exam they jump at the chance. Especially as it involves them spending time with the very beautiful Father Peter.

Apart from a slightly improbable precocity about the performances of the schoolgirls of its title, Lisa McGee's sitcom, set in Ireland in the mid-90s at the tail end of the Troubles, is highly engaging, bristlingly funny stuff. This week, they are particularly on edge having been up all night studying for an exam. However, a dubious case of an "apparition" affords them the chance to get out of the exam and spend quality theological time with the dishy Father Peter.David Stubbs, The Guardian, 18th January 2018
It's not the most original plot in the history of comedy but the cast pulls it off due in main to the sheer energy they exude.Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke, 18th January 2018
