Bad Education sees Whitehall take on the role of Alfie Wickers, a teacher in his first job, hopelessly toiling with the challenges of an out-of-control class, a massive crush on the biology teacher (Sarah Soleman), and a headmaster (Mathew Horne) who seems less inclined to help than to bring fresh mayhem to the corridors.
