Waterloo Road Comprehensive School is on the scrap heap. It can be found very near the bottom of every league table there is. Its teachers have given up trying to make a difference as they struggle to cope with their nightmare jobs. When the Headmaster has a nervous breakdown Jack Rimmer reluctantly replaces him. He recruits educational zealot Andrew Treneman to try to find that difference.
Denzil seems younger than his twelve years and worshipped his big brother, Earl
– an unhealthy relationship which resulted in Denzil carrying the can for Earl’s psychotic behaviour and spending a period in a Young Offenders Institute last year.
Denzil struggled to adjust to Waterloo Road and has behavioural problems which are a result of his chaotic family environment and having always been labelled ‘thick’ by peers and adults alike. Far from being stupid though, he’s actually very bright in his own way – but it took Jasmine
to discover the real reason for his reticence in class: crushing under confidence and dyslexia.
