Life provides steep learning curves for Vicki, Grantly and Janeece – although not all on the same subject – as Waterloo Road finds its corridors littered with more personal problems…

Having moved out of the unhappy Fisher family home, Vicky’s living in a hostel and struggling to cope with classes and her ailing father. Her visits to her dad in hospital are proving costly to her education and it’s showing in her exam results. Deputy Head Chris wants to help, but Vicki is desperate and blackmails him: if he doesn’t give her better grades she’ll tell all about his one-night stand with Jess. This forces Chris to do a deal that helps Vicki, but could ruin his career.

English teacher Grantly’s also desperate, but stubbornly refuses to acknowledge how bad his home life is as he struggles to cope with wife Fleur’s Alzheimer’s. He promises he won’t put her in a home – but how much longer can he cope? Cookery teacher Ruby thinks he’s near breaking point…

Ruby’s got her own problems, though, as school secretary Janeece seems less sure about letting her and John adopt her baby. Ruby realises she has to get everything legal – but what if this isn’t what Janeece wants any more? Is Ruby about to lose the baby she has always longed for?
