A-Level results day. Cutler’s Grammar School. 1980s Sheffield.

Eight unruly teenagers burst into adulthood with the best grades their school has ever seen, but their sights are set on something higher: to study at the most famous academic institutions in the world—Oxford and Cambridge. But their teachers can’t agree how best to tutor them.

There’s Hector, the maverick English teacher who believes in culture for its own sake; Irwin, the shrewd supply teacher full of soundbites; Felix, the headmaster obsessed with league tables; and Mrs Lintott, the History teacher who thinks her colleagues are all fools.
