Lloyd George Junior and Infants has had an inspection, and the report’s not good. The scheming head is only concerned with sucking up to anyone who’ll enhance his CV, and the all-female staff is either too disgruntled, too lazy or too naive to care. Then in walks, a handsome new supply teacher and everyone suddenly falls over to win his attention. Shocked to find the girl he loved and lost at Uni working there, can he re-kindle the flame?
