Bad Education, released on DVD by 2entertain on 9th September 2013, stars Jack Whitehall as Alfie Wicker, the worst teacher ever to grace the halls of any state comprehensive.
More immature than the kids he teaches, Alfie's idea of a productive lesson is getting over a hangover and managing to avoid the school bully. In a strange, pathetic sort of way though, the kids love him, and he genuinely has their best interests at heart. Abbey Grove School is populated by some of the weirdest teachers you could ever meet: Fraser (Mathew Horne) the hair-brained Headmaster who longs to be down with the kids, Miss Gulliver (Sarah Solemani) the biology teacher with a heart of gold but perhaps a dash too much openness and honesty and Deputy Headmistress Miss Pickwell (Michelle Gomez) who displays all the charm and sensitivity of a Third Reich Dominatrix.
Alfie's class is Form K, a bunch of misfits that have been written off by the rest of the school, but Alfie can't help but see a bit of himself in them. This is about a class of kids and their teacher's quest to get through life and get the best results with the minimum amount of effort possible. Sadly it's not an equation that always adds up. From disastrous parents' evenings to cringe-worthy sex-education lessons to life-threatening self-defence classes to school elections full of dirty tricks and a school trip to see a rhino-pig; Bad Education is school life as you've never seen it before.
