Jack Rimmer is Waterloo Road's hard man head teacher. Jack is a complete pragmatist and doesn't care how things are done, as long as they work. Jack has found love with Davina Shackleton, who was previously his P.A and is now a teaching assistant. It's with Davina's love and support that Jack is just managing to hold things together.
