Miss Courtney tells Jeremy to expect a new student from Africa.
An Inspector from the board of education calls to see Miss Courtney and drops in on Jeremy's without warning, to observe how he gives the lesson.
Jeremy welcomes the inspector Roger Kenyon into the believing that he is the new African student that Miss Courtney told him about.
During a tea break Jeremy goes to see Miss Courtney and she tells him that there's an Inspector in the building. Jeremy tells her not to worry and that he'll sort it out.
Back in Jeremy calls the attendance roll and tells the what he thinks about Inspectors and their old fashioned ways.
Mr Kenyon is listening to what Jeremy is saying, when Miss Courtney walks in to the room and sees Mr Kenyon sitting in the back row. She apologises to him for Jeremy's remarks and tells Jeremy that Mr Kenyon is the school inspector.
Later when the Inspector's wife comes looking for him, Jeremy mistakes her for the new African student and makes another embarrassing mistake.
