Series synopsis

Series 1

In the first episode of the series, the audience finds out that Nathan Carter is going to start a job at his old secondary school, which his brother Josh doesn't approve of, as it makes him 'uncool', compared to the rapper and cool guy he used to be, and means that he'll be on his back at all times. After dropping off Josh at his school, he attempts to embarrass him in front of his classmates. Upon reaching the building, Nathan already has to break up a fight. Meanwhile, Josh has a rap demo which he wants B-Mode to listen to, so decides to sneak into the ICT room at breaktime with his friends Ash and Ryan to create a cover for it. While walking down the corridor, the three see Nathan waving at Josh. Ryan believes that he looks like Josh's brother, which Ash declines saying that his brother is a rapper. This shows that Josh has not yet told anyone that Nathan is his brother. Josh confronts his brother and tells him to not make any contact with him at school whatsoever.

Nathan enters the staff room and finds out that a lot of the teachers remember him as a troublemaker while he was at school, especially the headmaster Mr. Byron, by looking at his school records (which Nathan mistakes for his own rap records) and claims that he wouldn't have expected to see him as a teacher. Mr. Byron puts him in charge of supervising what the students call the 4 O'Clock club alongside his main duty of being an English teacher. Upon this, he meets music teacher Melanie Poppy who shows him around.

Josh and his other friend Molly go into the ICT room to take photographs for their cover while Ash and Ryan keep look out. They succeed, but eventually Ms Andress notices them and claims they shouldn't be inside the school at break, so they hide in the toilets. Josh wants to give his demo to B-Mode at his signing but has detention at the same time.

Nathan begins teaching the 4 O'Clock Club (really the after-school activities club), until Miss Poppy tells him the 4 O'Clock Club is actually the after-school detention class. He goes in there seeing the students causing a lot of trouble.
