It’s 1985 and Jack Sheffield returns to Ragley village
school for his ninth year as headteacher.
A year of surprises is in store. Heathcliffe Earnshaw enters the village scarecrow competition, Ruby the Caretaker finds romance and retirement looms for Vera the Secretary.
It’s the time of Halley’s Comet, Band Aid, Trivial Pursuit, Microsoft Windows, Dynasty shoulder pads, Roland Rat and ‘Back to the Future’.
Meanwhile Jack has a battle with the rising stars of the teaching profession to save his job and his school.
