    The is the pilot episode of a great BBC drama about a failing school and the teachers attempts to turn it around and also what happens after the bell rings. This show not only tells you about the teachers work struggles and their real lives, but focuses on a few kids in and out of schol as well. Jack Rimmer, the headteacher hires Oxford Graduate Andrew Trenemen who has big ideas for Waterloo Road, most of which don't get a warm welcome by students and staff alike. However, Kim Campbell head of pastoral care, warms to Andrew and his enthusiasm. Good start.moreless
