Bad Education - Series 1-3 [DVD]
Vendor: Box Set Shop Online
Bad Education – written by and starring Jack Whitehall – follows Alfie Wickers, the worst teacher ever to (dis)grace the British Education system.
Abbey Grove School is populated by some of the weirdest teachers ever: Fraser (Mathew Horne) the hair-brained Headmaster, Miss Gulliver (Sarah Solemani) the biology teacher with a heart of gold, and Deputy Headmistress Miss Pickwell (Michelle Gomez), who displays all the charm and sensitivity of a Third Reich dominatrix. Alfie’s class have been written off by the rest of the school - but Alfie’s determined to take them under his wing. From disastrous parents’ evenings to cringe-worthy sex-education lessons, from life-threatening self-defence classes to school elections full of dirty tricks... Bad Education is school life as you’ve never seen it before.
Alfie Wickers (Jack Whitehall) returns as the self-styled maverick of Abbey Grove, attempting to teach his class something - anything - that requires zero effort. The staff room politics are tricky: Miss Gulliver (Sarah Solemani) is now seeing one of their female ex-students, Miss Pickwell (Michelle Gomez) is giving President Putin a run for his money and Fraser (Mathew Horne) mistakenly gives all of the school’s funds to ‘The Nigerian Minister of Finance’. This term sees a furiously fought swimming gala, a drugs awareness day that ends in Alfie’s utter humiliation and Fraser staging Abbey Grove’s own Take Me Out.
Exams are looming so it’s time for Alfie to actually start teaching his class, but the path to A*s never did run smooth. Adding to Alfie’s stress levels is the appointment of his dad, Martin Wickers (Harry Enfield) as the new deputy head and his increasingly disastrous love with his girlfriend, Miss Gulliver (Sarah Solemani). Fraser (Mathew Horne) starts the summer term with a strike on his hands after badly investing the school’s money. Thrown into the mix is an evening of after school clubs, a competitive sports day, Alfie and his class sitting a Biology exam and the end of term Prom.
