There's a school like Waterloo Road in every town in Britain. The staff are overworked and underpaid, the budgets only ever seem to get tighter, and the kids more troublesome. It's a melting pot of class and race where the day-to-day troubles of its students spill out in dramatic ways. However, every pupil knows that at Waterloo Road they'll always be cared for by the staff and given every chance to achieve an education. The teachers themselves are often far from perfect, but as any pupil with a problem soon discovers, a few motivated and inspiring individuals can make a massive difference. Written by
I am so excited about the seventh series starting this Wednesday because Waterloo has captivated me for weeks. As a 14 year old school boy I feel like I can really connect with the story lines of some of these kids and really get a sense of the variety of issues facing other young people today. This show does the one thing Coronation Street, Emmerdale and all the other big soaps fail to do and that is really highlight the real problems young people face today.
Amanda Burton did a terrific job playing Karen Fisher, the new head teacher. Her character faced some real hard story lines and problems, which she tackled really well. I really do wish that they would bring back Angela Griffin as Kim because she really gave some amazing performances. Waterloo Road also brings up what a tough job teachers face today and how much they should be commended for it.
Like I said above, the next series I'm sure will not disappoint and continue to give the same amount of Drama and highlight young people's problems in this modern world.
