A teaser of the new season reveals: “Ackley’s back with more high-jinx plans, scams and madcap adventures in school and on the estate.
“We pick up with our trio, Johnny, Kayla and Fizza, as they try to navigate the second half of the school year – a year already jam-packed with love triangles, catfishing, compulsive liars and one utterly joyous Romany wedding.
“But it’s not over until the last school bell rings… And for the adults, life is just as chaotic. Marina pulls a pulse-racing stunt at school, designed to send her social media sky-high.
“It causes outrage among the parents and puts Martin firmly under Ken’s boot. But Marina’s high is short-lived when she discovers that Jules has racked up debt and they’ve been evicted.
“Meanwhile, new teacher Asma arrives with firebrand ideals that capture the hearts of Fizza and Hassan.”
Returning to the cast for the new series are Sunetra Sarker, Charlie Hardwick, Ryan Dean, Yasmin Al Khudhairi, Robyn Cara, Rob James Collier and George Potts
They’ll be joined by new cast members Laila Zaidi (new hotshot teacher Asma), Adam Little (Kayla’s young brother Kyle) and Megan Morgan (Marina).
