Philosophising about the 'S'-word: Watch… and learn

Bad Education

the series philosopher bad education wikiBad Education is a British sitcom produced by Tiger Aspect Productions for BBC Three. It stars Jack Whitehall (Fresh Meat) as young teacher Alfie Wickers – “the worst teacher ever to grace the British education system” – at the fictional Abbey Grove School, in Watford, Hertfordshire. Mathew Horne (Gavin & Stacey) plays Fraser, the headmaster of the fictional school alongside him.

Alfie Wickers (Jack Whitehall) is a posh, newly graduated Secondary School history teacher. Ever determined to impress his crush, Rosie Gulliver (Sarah Solemani, The Wrong Mans), Alfie makes repeated efforts to appear “cool,” such as coaching the school football team, organising a weapons amnesty and fielding a candidate for the school elections. Usually, in these efforts, he will turn to his class (particularly Joe, the “teacher’s pet” portrayed by Ethan Lawrence), despite their open disrespect and disgust for him, for help. At the same time, he finds himself having to deal with the shenanigans of his eccentric headmaster, Shaquille “Simon” Fraser (Matthew Horne) and meet the expectations of his deputy headmistress, Isobel Pickwell (Michelle Gomez, Dr. Who, Feel The Force) and her replacement Celia Green (Samantha Spiro, Grandma’s House).
