Jessie Wallace plays outspoken single mum Candy, who is trying to keep her 11-year-old son, Kyle, on the straight and narrow with help from her grandad, George (George Cole), who isn't the best role model himself. She is determined to give her son the best education possible. When Kyle is offered a place at the local failing school, Candy mounts a one woman protest. She knows only too well the grass is greener at nearby Park View and doesn't see why her boy can't go there. However, fate intervenes. The conceited headmaster (Nathaniel Parker) of a nearby, prestigious, private school sees Candy on the local news. He jokes to his deputy, Charles, that if Kyle attended Haltham, he'd turn him from chav-rude-boy to respectable public school boy. Charles doesn't believe he can do it and they make a bet. The headmaster's first task is to find a way to get Kyle into the school.

However, as with Candy and Anthony very different worlds collide, the question is will Candy and her son be able to cope with the culture shock? A gripping and heart-warming drama that questions love, honour and reputation.
