Series 5 Spring Term
It s a new term at Waterloo Road and to say that nothing will be the same again is an understatement. There s a new boy, Finn Sharkey, who s been kicked out of more schools than most have attended. It will take more than Waterloo Road to turn him around, and if he s going down, he s not going alone. But in the meantime there s trouble to be caused, along with legal highs to be pursued regardless of the danger. Some pupils have the potential to make it from Waterloo Road to Oxford or Cambridge - a big step up for the school but Michaela feels excluded and drums up a demonstration against grade prejudice . She s a born leader, but does she have what it takes for higher education? By the end of term, the school will have seen a child abducted by a vengeful father, a schoolgirl crush that could destroy a career, a teacher whose life is spiralling out of control, and a head teacher whose heart is about to lead her out of the school gates - maybe for the last time. Because love is in the air at Waterloo Road, whether it s friendships that turn into love, or love that turns into friendship; marriages on the rocks or rocky relationships leading to marriage. You can be sure of one thing at this school: Nothing comes easy, and no one s getting what they want without a fight.
