Synopsis of Happiest Days

It’s 1986 and Jack Sheffield returns to Ragley village school for his tenth roller-coaster year as headteacher.

A year of surprises is in store. Ruby the Caretaker finds happiness at last; Vera the Secretary makes an important decision; a new teacher is appointed and a disaster threatens the school.

It’s the time of Thatcher’s third election victory, Dynasty shoulder pads, Yuppies, ‘Neighbours’, the National Curriculum and a Transformer for Christmas.

Meanwhile Jack receives unexpected news.
