Series 2, Episode 3 - The Old School

Aretha is worried about her future, so decides to go to the local comprehensive school, prompting much discussion of the family's home education credo.

Further details

Germaine brings new boyfriend Callum for his first official visit and, like a bosomy godfather, Della makes him an offer he can't refuse. Aretha's idea of school as a place of learning does not pan out, but Grampy has an alternative up his ratty sleeve.
