A buddy scheme is launched as the Year 6's start to make use of the facilities. Bored with Top Trumps, Theo and Laxo use the Grange Hill inhabitants instead, marking them for aspects like weirdness. Megan, Bryn's little sister is one of the new Year 6's - she tells Chloe that she is taught at home. Chloe warns Megan and Serena to watch out for their "buddy" Alex - she purloins their valuables for "safe-keeping". Sammy tries out contact lenses, and puts on mascara - it makes Alex take notice of her. Alex takes round his charges, but his efforts are subverted by Chloe's mock fear of him, and Ed pretending to flush Tigger's head down the toilet. Serena's decreasingly low opinion of Alex, and the school in general, is reduced further when he sees him apparently bully Sammy - but he's just helping her with her contact lenses. Serena runs off, but finds her at the stairwell where he often hid himself. They chat: Alex about his troubled past, and Serena about her reading difficulties. After,... Written by Geffers
