Engineer Mark Thackeray arrives to teach a totally undisciplined class at an East End school. Still hoping for a good engineering job, he's hopeful that he won't be there long. He starts implementing his own brand of classroom discipline: forcing the pupils to treat each other with respect. Inevitably he begins getting involved in the students' personal lives, and must avoid the advances of an amorous student while winning over the class tough. What will he decide when the engineering job comes through? Written by

When The Mindbenders play the graduation dance, they are very
obviously performing a lip-sync to studio recordings. A piano is audible, though no one visible is playing one. The guitar heard is a 12-string, though Eric Stewart is seen playing a 6-string Gibson Les Paul. Eric Stewart's lead vocals are very obviously double-tracked, a common technique for hiding performances with pitch issues. See more »

A new teacher arrives at a tough inner city school populated by teenage hooligans . Hardly a new concept for a movie is it ? , but TO SIR WITH LOVE is slightly different from the same type of film made in the 1980s and 90s , it`s set in swinging sixties London when Britannia really was cool , and the kids are " Cor blimey guvner " cockney kids who are not really bad , they`re just misunderstood and if you treat them as adults they`ll behave like adults . This is a totally naive , predictable film with an extremely progressive streak but that`s what I enjoyed about it as Mark Thackeray shows the kids what being an adult is all about . There`s not a cynical bone in this movie`s body , and it`s good to remember a time when a " really tough " school meant pupils talking in class and slamming doors
