Tom's a laid back popular teacher, however, the new term sees his good nature and patience pushed to their limits with arrival of the Kelly family 'from Hell'. Not only does Tom have to see them in school each day, the family are Tom's new next door neighbours.
Tom shares his home with his partner and colleague, Davina Shackleton. He also plays single dad to Chlo, the daughter of his pervious partner, Izzie Redpath, who was murdered on the school grounds two years previously. The Kellys make his life more and more unbearable, leaving him questioning his position as Head of Pastoral Care and his ability to refrain from assaulting the worst member of the Kelly crew.
