Series 8 Summer Term
It s the most shocking term yet in the history of Waterloo Road, a term that will change some lives and end others as staff and students grapple with the challenges that life puts before them. For Head Teacher Michael, it will see him up against Lorraine Donnegan, the money behind the school, as she attempts to implement 30% cuts, a hammer blow to his vision of education for all. Trouble rears its most ugly head in the form of Steve-O, Dynasty Barry s ex-boyfriend fresh out of prison and ready to get his hooks into anyone he can including Dynasty. But she has eyes for Kevin, leading to the sexiest chess game ever, and a whole lot of trouble for Kevin including Dynasty s hot-headed mother and a TV-show that fi nds him face to face with an unwelcome past. Grantly Budgen has fallen into a coma, and his wife Maggie is putting all her hope in Tom Clarkson; soft-spoken Audrey fi nds herself engaged to a Malawian immigrant; one new teacher has a hidden agenda; another brings a sharp tongue to teaching mandarin. As the term draws to a close, so will many of the problems facing the school, its teachers and pupils. But the completely unexpected is always just around the corner at Waterloo Road.
