Its 5C's last day at Fenn St. School and, as you'd expect, they can't wait to see the back of the place. Hedges asks Price to be best man at his forthcoming wedding and, in so doing, offends Potter, who had had his heart set on the job. To console the caretaker, Hedges offers him the role of Chief Usher, assuring him it is a more important responsibility.
Hedges also manages to upset 5C when he says he plans to forget them. In revenge, they lock him in Potter's boiler room. As assembly gets underway, Hedges attempts to signal his predicament by tapping on the pipes...
The final episode of Season Three effectively marked the end of the show's golden era, and though the gang resurfaced in the 'And Everyone Came Too' Christmas Special ( in which Hedges finally married Penny ), the movie, the fourth season episode 'Old Fennians Day' ( with Carol Hawkins replacing Penny Spencer as 'Sharon' ), and the spin-off series, things would never be the same at Fenn Street School again. The climax is virtually identical to the finale of 'To Sir With Love' ( Hedges is given a present by his class, and meets one of the new intake ), though without the sentimentality.
Funniest moment - Hedges emerging from the boiler room smack in the middle of Mr.Cromwell's address to the school!
