Since the news that Waterloo Road will shut it's gates for the final time after Series 10, we asked the fans how they felt about the program and what their favourite head teacher, series and story lines have been! Here's what they said:
What's been the favourite series and head teachers of Waterloo Road?
What has been your favourite storyline on Waterloo Road and why?
Victoria, age 18: Either Rachel and Lindsay's storyline, I'd have loved to have a teacher like Rachel there for me when I was at school. Or Nikki Boston and Vix Spark's relationship, their relationship was so realistic and tense, I love them both as actresses.
Jamie, age 16: The ordeal between Stuart Hordley and Rachel Mason; how Stuart blackmailed Rachel, and then Eddie Lawson's interfering. I also like how the storyline built up to an explosive end to Series 3.
Rebecca, age 17: I loved all of Chlo's storylines in the early series. I loved getting to watch her life unfold and her relationship with Donte.
Katie, age 17: When the Kelly’s entered Waterloo Road because it demonstrated many different scenarios such as guns, prison, social workers, cancer, dangerous driving but most of all success.
Rachel, age 19: I have two favourite story lines that I couldn't possibly choose from. The first is when we find out about Rachel Mason's past, and the reaction from the pupils when she returns after the fire is just amazing.
The other storyline has to be the recent 'love triangle' (if you can call it that) between Nikki, Vix and Hector. I honestly have no reason why other than the fact that I love Hector's character and finally, a Waterloo Road couple get their happy ending.
Anita, age 15: My favourite storyline is when Barry and Darren were eating the mushrooms and thought they where magic. It made me laugh so much!
Tom, age 14: Sambuca Kellys cancer storyline because it was beautifully acted and actually made me cry. Best and saddest storyline ever.
What impact do you feel Waterloo Road has had on you? Has it helped or inspired you?
Beth, age 17: Waterloo Road is utterly inspiring. It has covered so many aspects that have been true to real life. I found Dynasty Barry and Stevo's restricted relationship, utterly heartfelt and so truthful, and gave me a realistic idea of the trauma's some girl's experience.
Jacqui, age 28: It has shown that it is OK to be Gay. Nicki's character really helped me to be the person that I am now: out and proud and enjoying life.
Priscilla, age 14: It's been a real eye-opener to several situations and has helped me become a more understanding person since everyone on the show seems "normal" when they start out then their story lines unfold and you realise they have huge issues to face.
Kelly, age 20: I was diagnosed with leukaemia and more or less lived in hospital for 6 months; to get through the evenings mostly we would watch 2-3 episodes. The most exciting times were waiting for my new box set to arrive and my mum to bring them to the hospital. It made my dads and mine connection a whole lot stronger and I'll never forget what Waterloo road really means to me and how it has been there for me throughout everything.
Sorrel, age 15: I feel like Waterloo Road has made me happier and given me things to talk about with people who I wouldn't normally talk to, which subsequently means it has helped me gain friends!
Robyn, age 15: I wouldn't be as well prepared for whatever life throws at me if it wasn't for Waterloo Road!
Rachel, age 19: Waterloo Road has inspired me to keep pushing for success, to be happy and ultimately, to be me.
What are you going to miss most about Waterloo Road?
Rachel, age 19: Hands down, I'm going to miss the characters! It's going to be odd not seeing the same faces on my screen every Wednesday evening but it's been a blast and I've enjoyed every minute.
Beth, age 17: I'm going to miss coming home from college and having Waterloo Road to look forward to on a Wednesday evening. It's the one thing that brings my family together, to sit down and watch the telly as a family.
Jacqui, age 28: Fast paced, hard-hitting storylines. Great characters. Funny. Cool music. How it tackles real issues. And always maintains a good moral compass.
Emma, age 21: The storylines, the drama, the diverse characters. Oh and the music, I've found many great songs thanks to the great choice of music used on the show!
Priscilla, age 14: The storylines and the drama. There isn't another show like it out there especially not one involving people who are in secondary school that we can relate to like that. I will miss the variety in characters and the humor that goes along with it. It is a fantastic show that's made me laugh, made me cry, made my heart skip a beat, made me smile but mostly made me happy. I will really miss it!
