PORTRAYED BY: Paul Birchard
Jerry Preston was the prospective investor into the school. Whilst he began teaching many Christian idologies to the students, which didn't sit very well with atheist Andrew Treneman.
He withdrew his investment from the school by sparking outrage among pupils and staff for his comments about how dead teacher Lorna Dickey had given in to the Devil and taken her own life after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Roger Aspinall also withdrew his investment at the same time after a series of separate disagreements with headmaster Jack Rimmer.
