It’s 1984 and Jack Sheffield returns to Ragley village school for his eighth year as headteacher.

Four-year-old Dallas Sue-Ellen Earnshaw uses some choice vocabulary, Ruby the Caretaker finds a special friend, Nora Pratt hosts a belly dancing evening in her Coffee Shop and eight-year-old Rosie Sparrow leads the school choir to television fame.

Itís the time of the minersí strike, Trivial Pursuit, Band Aid, Moonboots, cabbage patch dolls... and a final goodbye to the pound note.

Meanwhile Jack is finally faced with the most difficult decision of his life...
