Ros McCain

Ros McCain

Age 16, Year 12 pupil

In the lower sixth, is bookish Ros McCain, the surprise child of slightly older parents. Growing up with these two as her main influence, Ros has always had an 'old head on young shoulders' and is an able and trustworthy student. She is often relied on by staff to help out with school projects or give advice to younger pupils in trouble. Ros is on course for a glittering university career. Ros is supremely unaffected by current fads or peer pressure and her independent and carefree spirit is what attracted her boyfriend, Philip. However when Ros begins to explore her sexuality complicated entanglements ensue.
