Starting life on BBC TV before transferring to radio, Chiselbury School is run "for the sons of gentlefolk".
Headmaster, Professor James Edwards, M.A. never misses a trick when it comes to exploiting the students and their parents.

It's only thanks to the efforts of the devoted deputy head, Mr Pettigrew, that the school exists at all.
