Meanwhile, Barry breaks into Sian’s house and steals a precious and intimate photograph of her and Michael. Causing trouble, he brings it into school and posts it around all of the corridors. Sian doesn’t know who the perpetrator is, but suspects Barry to be the culprit. He then tries to humiliate her in front of the whole class, causing Sian to completely snap.

She confronts Michael, who says that he still has feelings for Sian. He begs her to stay at Waterloo Road, but her mind is made up. She’s going to leave the school.
