Bad Education Series 3

Bad Education Series 3

It’s summer term and Alfie Wickers (Jack Whitehall)  is back as the self-styled maverick of Abbey Grove.  With exams looming it’s time for Alfie to finally knuckle down and start teaching his class but the path to A*s never did run smooth.  Alfie definitely has the best intentions for his class but the truth is he is a bigger kid than any of the kids he teaches so his good intentions always seem to end up out the window.  He really does care though.  Maybe this will be the term he finally grows up?

The staff room this term isn’t going to be any easier than the class room.  Alfie’s dad Martin Wickers (Harry Enfield) has been appointed as the new deputy head and despite his protestations that their relationship won’t affect the work place, his stories of “Smoocher” wetting himself on his 18th birthday mean it is all beyond cringe for Alfie.  His love life’s also a disaster. Despite starting the term living with his girlfriend, biology teacher Miss Gulliver (Sarah Solemani) things quickly go wrong. All too soon, Miss Gulliver is back in the arms of her ex.  Fraser (Mathew Horne) starts the summer term with a strike on his hands after badly investing the school’s money in his own clothing range, Dolce and GaBanter.

Thrown in to the mix of all this series three also features an evening of after school clubs which sees Alfie LARPing for the first time, a furiously competitive sports day, a joyride in an ambulance which ends with a bang, Alfie and his class trying to cheat their way through a Biology exam and the end of term Prom with a shock result for the Prom King and Queen.
