The staff of the Gwendolen Kyte School for Girls are an odd assortment of social misfits and eccentric types. Returning for a new term the teachers face a catalogue of catastrophe, and tension reaches breaking point when a government inspector arrives with anonymous letters defaming the school as outmoded, old-fashioned and unsafe, and the staff as unqualified. Who could have betrayed them? And if the school is closed down, where will they go? A warm and touching depiction of female relationships, with several excellent roles for older actresses.
