The assembly hall at St Dunstan’s: The teachers are sat at desks ready to see the eager parents with their sullen offspring in tow. Mrs Abbot and he son Christopher are with his form tutor and biology teacher, the stern Miss Holten. Not exactly the brightest student, Christopher stands awkwardly worrying about what his teacher will say. He knows the school prides itself on its exam successes and if he doesn’t buck his ideas up he’ll be out on his ear. He just wants the whole experience to be over so he can go home and play video games.
