The journey of six new Teach First teachers as they understand what it means to be responsible for a classroom of young people.
The trainees are approaching the end of the academic year and, for some, the momentous decision of whether to stay in teaching. Chloe is in the second year of the Teach First programme, her two- year commitment is nearly up and she faces the dilemma of whether to continue at the school or follow her ambition to go travelling. Maths teacher Nick has been balancing a long-distance relationship with his job at the Harefield Academy, and with his wedding looming he too must make important decisions about his future. Claudenia receives a surprise invitation for her and a pupil which will change the way she thinks about her job. The end of term also means exams - and results. The teachers finally find out if they've made an impact in the classrooms and affected the lives of the kids they teach.
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.
