Two schools: Bagley Hall, wild, ultra-smart independent, crammed with the children of the famous, and Larkminster Comprehensive, demoralised, cash-strapped and sinking fast.
Janna Curtis, the young, feisty and highly attractive new head, drafted in to save the failing Larkminster comp, faces a daunting task. Her pupils are out of control, her teachers bolshy, and Larks's prime site has made it the target for greedy developers. She detests private education, but to rescue Larks she will go to any lengths - even forming a partnership with Bagley Hall and its arrogant but utterly gorgeous headmaster, Hengist Brett-Taylor.
Hengist, in turn, knows that sharing his school's magnificent facilities with Larkminster Comp will not only bring him vast tax concessions, it will also ensure frequent meetings with the tempestuous but captivating Janna. Teachers and parents are horrified by suh a bonding, but for the pupils, the scheme provides joyous opportunity for scandalous behaviour.
Will our heroine emerge with her heart and her school intact?
