Synopsis
Cocklebank High School has its challenges, but the Head has high hopes for its future. Despite a catchment area where taxis refuse to go, the Head's planned changes will move their Ofsted scoring from 'Good' to 'Excellent'; but at what cost?
There's soon to be a wedding, but will there be a funeral? Do the staff share the Head's vision, or do they have very different agendas?
