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.
Justin is new Head Vaughan’s eldest son. He was devastated by his dad leaving the family, and it’s turned him from a bright, confident, switched on, polite, sensitive young man into a brooding teenager - wounded, bitter and lost. To a large extent he has shut down; he’s moody, surly and uncommunicative. It takes very little to trigger an angry outburst from him and he can be aggressive - violent even. He loves his younger brother and is very protective of him, but lately Justin’s so self-absorbed he barely registers that Leo’s hurting too. Vaughan struggles hard to get through to Justin… but it’s a losing battle. Causing his father’s new relationship to fail is now in danger of defining Justin’s whole outlook, and his loathing of Vaughan’s new partner, Allie, knows no bounds.
