Tough Young Teachers Episode 5 of 6

The trainees are approaching the end of the spring term and the pace of working life is relentless.

Science teacher Claudenia is in a gifted and talented school, but a clique of Year 10 girls are becoming impossible to manage. They have taken against her and their lack of respect her is starting to show in the classroom. Claudenia must decide whether a confrontation is the best solution. As the term ends, she begins to question whether teaching was the right choice of career.

Maths teacher Nick has taken on a life-skills lesson, which means he must explain about the birds and the bees to his impressionable Year 7 pupils. Unluckily for them, Mr Church knows nothing about the topic so has to draw on fellow trainee Meryl for back-up.

At Lanfranc school in Croydon, a fight outside the school has serious consequences for one of Charles's pupils.
