Oh, hang on, I might just need a dab of concealer...

0:00:020:00:05

HE CLEARS HIS THROAT

0:00:050:00:07

Oh. Actually, you know what, that's pretty perfect right there.

0:00:080:00:12

Action!

0:00:120:00:13

Welcome. My name is Mr Bell.

0:00:180:00:20

How do you like that, Barlow?

0:00:250:00:27

HE LIP TRILLS

0:00:280:00:30

Take two.

0:00:300:00:31

Welcome. My name is Bell. Crispin Bell.

0:00:320:00:36

-And as head teacher...

-Former head teacher.

0:00:360:00:39

..former head teacher here at Elmsmere,

0:00:390:00:41

today I'll be showing you the caring

0:00:410:00:43

and supportive environment that we can offer to your...

0:00:430:00:46

delightful children.

0:00:460:00:48

We, the teachers, here are always seeking to feed our pupils'

0:00:480:00:52

imaginations in a constant mission

0:00:520:00:55

to expand their tiny brains.

0:00:550:00:57

You could say we're the watering can refreshing the bonsai tree

0:00:570:01:01

I like to call school.

0:01:010:01:03

Grow, little green shoots. Grow.

0:01:030:01:05

And I think I can say without fear of contradiction

0:01:050:01:08

that the bond between pupil and staff here is so supportive

0:01:080:01:11

something very... Argh!

0:01:110:01:14

Gosh, you're like, a natural in front of the camera,

0:01:140:01:16

-aren't you, sir?

-Thank you, Murphy.

0:01:160:01:18

A natural disaster.

0:01:180:01:20

And action.

0:01:290:01:30

To me, Elmsmere is like a greenhouse.

0:01:310:01:35

One with bells every 40 minutes

0:01:350:01:37

and a cafeteria that serves tuna fritters on a Friday.

0:01:370:01:40

Also rats.

0:01:400:01:41

And, like any greenhouse, we encourage growth in all areas.

0:01:430:01:48

Although rest assured, if we see the wrong kind of growth...

0:01:480:01:51

..we cut it back

0:01:530:01:55

savagely.

0:01:550:01:56

Of course, this is a place where imagination has always been valued.

0:01:570:02:01

How dare you burst in here like that!

0:02:020:02:04

I could have been doing anything.

0:02:040:02:06

Sir, it's urgent. You need to come.

0:02:060:02:08

There's...there's been a...a...

0:02:080:02:12

-A what?

-It's Miss Andress, sir.

-And what about her?

0:02:120:02:15

-She's had an accident.

-Oh, is it serious?

0:02:150:02:18

She's...she's lost...a leg, sir.

0:02:180:02:23

'We're famous for encouraging creativity and storytelling skills.'

0:02:230:02:27

Maybe, it was an animal, sir.

0:02:270:02:29

Are you saying an animal ate Miss Andress' leg?

0:02:290:02:31

I don't know. She just had one leg less than last time I saw her.

0:02:310:02:35

(Fewer.)

0:02:350:02:36

One leg fewer.

0:02:360:02:37

I don't get it. She's gone. We need to go and find her.

0:02:390:02:41

I'm starting to suspect

0:02:410:02:43

that this whole thing MIGHT be a pack of lies.

0:02:430:02:45

Maybe, she crawled away.

0:02:450:02:47

So, where is the blood?

0:02:470:02:48

Perhaps, the animal licked it up.

0:02:490:02:51

Perhaps, we should go and find out

0:02:510:02:53

exactly why you're not in detention like you're supposed to be!

0:02:530:02:55

'We enjoy pushing the younger pupils to think for themselves.'

0:02:550:02:59

-What's the matter?

-My bag. Josh Carter hid it in there.

0:02:590:03:03

Oh, did he?

0:03:030:03:05

All right.

0:03:050:03:06

-HE BANGS DOOR

-Hey!

0:03:100:03:12

'We want our students to be able to imagine the impossible

0:03:120:03:15

'and then make it happen...?'

0:03:150:03:17

Your attention, everyone. The mayor.

0:03:180:03:21

APPLAUSE AND CAMERA FLASHES

0:03:210:03:23

It's with great honour that I proudly declare...

0:03:230:03:26

He's rigged the sign.

0:03:260:03:28

..the new Elmsbury Academy officially open.

0:03:280:03:32

HE SCREAMS IN SLOW-MO

0:03:360:03:40

What are you doing, man?

0:03:470:03:49

Get up!

0:03:490:03:51

Get off her! Carter, stop ruining everything.

0:03:520:03:56

"Smelly bum arcade!"

0:03:560:03:58

No photos.

0:03:580:04:00

'Murphy! This isn't the right script. I didn't write this.'

0:04:000:04:03

"Imagine the impossible?" What's all this twaddle?

0:04:030:04:05

Where's my bit about imagination being dangerous in the wrong hands?

0:04:050:04:08

The new head rewrote it, sir.

0:04:080:04:11

I imagine it's pretty gutting, sir.

0:04:110:04:13

Being replaced with someone else cos you weren't good enough.

0:04:130:04:17

All right, all right, all right.

0:04:170:04:20

-Right, what's next?

-We've got to interview some pupils

0:04:200:04:23

and Miss Andress wants you to ask them these questions.

0:04:230:04:26

OK. Go and get me some Year 11s.

0:04:290:04:32

And not Newman or Rodgers.

0:04:340:04:36

Murphy! What did I say?

0:04:370:04:39

Yeah, well, I imagined the impossible, sir.

0:04:390:04:41

And I made it happen.

0:04:410:04:43

OK. First, Newman.

0:04:430:04:46

Can you tell us how everyday life at Elmsmere encourages you

0:04:460:04:49

to use your imagination?

0:04:490:04:51

YES!

0:04:510:04:52

What about when I solved the ever so tricky problem

0:04:520:04:55

of locker security with the simple but brilliant use of pants?

0:04:550:04:59

Pants.

0:04:590:05:00

-What is that?

-Left a pair of wet pants in there end of term,

0:05:030:05:06

you know, to deter thieves?

0:05:060:05:08

Idiot!

0:05:100:05:12

Urrgh!

0:05:120:05:13

Or when I came up with a very creative suggestion about staffing?

0:05:130:05:17

Do you know what would make a great head of year?

0:05:170:05:20

Here it comes.

0:05:200:05:21

A monkey.

0:05:210:05:23

Or when I went on an unplanned but thoroughly enjoyable field trip.

0:05:230:05:29

Andress.

0:05:290:05:31

Stay quiet, I think she saw us.

0:05:330:05:37

Quick.

0:05:380:05:40

-Ashley!

-Get in!

0:05:400:05:42

OK, OK, listen, listen, listen.

0:05:550:05:58

Right. I'm sorry I got you trapped in the back of an ice cream van

0:05:580:06:00

and about the disco last year. And them girls,

0:06:000:06:02

but think about the genius of where we are now.

0:06:020:06:06

How is this genius?

0:06:060:06:07

Because of this.

0:06:070:06:08

Right. Next question.

0:06:190:06:20

You know, sometimes it's frightening.

0:06:200:06:24

My imagination is so out there.

0:06:240:06:26

It's as though I've got a special gift.

0:06:260:06:29

Can you give it back?

0:06:290:06:31

Isaac, you would not be saying that

0:06:330:06:35

if you'd seen The Attack of Mr Chimpy, Mutant Monkey.

0:06:350:06:38

Moving on. Next question.

0:06:380:06:40

-"Mr Chimpy?"

-Oh!

0:06:400:06:42

Hey, Josh, have you seen the lens on this thing?

0:06:420:06:45

Look, you could go in and you can go out

0:06:450:06:49

and you can go in and you can go...

0:06:490:06:52

Ash, you're kind of making me feel sick.

0:06:520:06:54

-Whoa, it's even better than I thought.

-My dad got it for me.

0:06:540:06:57

I was thinking about making my first film.

0:06:570:06:59

You know, I want to do something like The Dark Knight,

0:06:590:07:01

moody and edgy.

0:07:010:07:03

Yeah, totally that,

0:07:030:07:05

but with a mutant monkey that wants to eat everything.

0:07:050:07:07

No, Ash, I want to establish myself as a serious director.

0:07:070:07:11

What's more serious than people running and screaming

0:07:110:07:14

torn between fear of the giant monkey

0:07:140:07:18

and respect?

0:07:180:07:20

Monster monkey rap movie...

0:07:200:07:23

Terrified kids fleeing from a giant gorilla.

0:07:230:07:28

Fear, screams,

0:07:280:07:30

and an epic soundtrack by the rap meister J Carter. Yes.

0:07:300:07:35

Well, I've got the monkey.

0:07:350:07:37

But where are you going to get thousands of screaming kids?

0:07:370:07:40

-BELL RINGS

-This ain't the bell's whatsit,

0:07:420:07:44

if it was, then all this is a practice thingy,

0:07:440:07:46

but it ain't. This is well beyond happening.

0:07:460:07:48

-So, we're all going to die.

-EVERYONE SCREAMS

0:07:480:07:52

Remember, calm walking in single file!

0:07:520:07:56

Leaving with me.

0:07:560:07:58

Calm down. Stop running.

0:07:580:08:00

OK, Ash, I believe you.

0:08:000:08:02

Mutant Monkey is a great idea. Now wrap it up before we get caught.

0:08:020:08:05

-Chill out, Beverly.

-Keep shooting, keep shooting.

0:08:050:08:08

I can feel the hits racking up.

0:08:080:08:11

-Ding-dong alert.

-Jump in the crowd, merge.

0:08:110:08:14

Mr Chimpy!

0:08:140:08:16

You three, my office now. Time for a friendly chat.

0:08:170:08:21

It's not going to be a friendly chat

0:08:210:08:23

cos even the way he says friendly is unfriendly.

0:08:230:08:27

Causing mass panic and the evacuation of the entire school

0:08:270:08:30

-with a mangy, stuffed monkey...

-Hey!

0:08:300:08:32

Mr Chimpy has feelings, you know?

0:08:320:08:34

..isn't the best example.

0:08:340:08:36

That's a bit judgmental.

0:08:360:08:37

No, I don't think so.

0:08:370:08:39

Look, sir, I ain't excusing anything,

0:08:400:08:42

but we didn't set off the alarm.

0:08:420:08:45

See, we just seized the opportunity to record the events

0:08:450:08:48

that unfolded for the benefit of others.

0:08:480:08:51

Oh, really?

0:08:510:08:53

-ON THE CAMERA:

-All we got to do is set off the fire alarm.

0:08:550:08:58

Next question. Can either of you recall a time

0:09:010:09:04

when you used your imagination to solve a practical problem?

0:09:040:09:08

(Oh, good heavens.)

0:09:080:09:10

Erm...

0:09:100:09:12

-Yeah.

-Really?

-Yeah.

0:09:120:09:15

-When Josh had that problem.

-Oh, yeah.

0:09:150:09:18

-Lent him a spare pair of pants, did you?

-No.

0:09:180:09:21

The other problem.

0:09:210:09:22

An interview?

0:09:270:09:29

Oh, what!

0:09:300:09:32

It were a proper nightmare.

0:09:320:09:33

-Josh's auntie wanting to come and work here.

-It's like he was cursed.

0:09:330:09:37

This place is so distressing. They never let you do anything.

0:09:370:09:41

Yeah, so imagine what it will be like when my auntie gets here.

0:09:410:09:44

-What?

-Yeah, she's got an interview at 9.30

0:09:440:09:46

and I need to think of a way to fudge it up. Any ideas?

0:09:460:09:49

What about a fat bomb, you know?

0:09:490:09:51

It's like a water bomb only fattier.

0:09:510:09:56

Hang on, that was my idea!

0:09:560:09:58

Stop trying to jack my mojo.

0:10:000:10:02

I mean, I thought of it. You messed it up.

0:10:020:10:05

Your auntie...splat, yeah?

0:10:050:10:07

She is covered in lard.

0:10:070:10:10

That is a bad interview technique.

0:10:100:10:12

Who wants to hire a greasy secretary? It's genius.

0:10:120:10:15

Right, she's coming. You doing this or what?

0:10:190:10:21

OK, yeah. Let's do it.

0:10:210:10:22

Now!

0:10:310:10:32

HE SCREAMS

0:10:350:10:38

Argh! Eck!

0:10:400:10:43

-You greased up the egg, you dumbo.

-You said, "Now."

0:10:480:10:50

I said, "No."

0:10:500:10:52

Everything would have been fine if you hadn't got all...

0:10:520:10:54

creative.

0:10:540:10:56

Proving that too much imagination from a pupil is a dangerous thing.

0:10:560:11:00

Too right.

0:11:010:11:02

BELL RINGS

0:11:020:11:05

And then my patrol leader said I could do model aircraft-making

0:11:050:11:08

for my creativity challenge, which was a massive relief.

0:11:080:11:11

Hold up, man, I need to tell Nero something.

0:11:110:11:13

Nero!

0:11:130:11:16

Owen is being well boring about Scouts. You have to shut him up.

0:11:160:11:19

-Charming.

-All right.

-Nice hat.

0:11:190:11:23

Cool, huh? It's Josh's.

0:11:230:11:25

You borrowed your cousin's stuff.

0:11:270:11:29

You've got to be careful there, mate, you know what he's capable of.

0:11:290:11:32

Josh Carter could do revenge for his creativity challenge.

0:11:320:11:35

If he was a Scoutly loser, which he's not.

0:11:350:11:38

HE RAPS: # Anybody got a double-crossing little cousin

0:11:380:11:41

# Who you thought was cool but then you found out that he wasn't

0:11:410:11:44

# Should have known the moment when he stepped into my home

0:11:440:11:47

# And left his pants in every single spot except his own

0:11:470:11:50

# But this is worse than using all my stuff without permission

0:11:500:11:52

# Laptop, headphones, CDs missing

0:11:520:11:56

# One time when he was in the bath for ages

0:11:560:11:59

# Caught him using my toothbrush for cleaning off his trainers

0:11:590:12:01

# What, he thinks it might be plain sailing at the top

0:12:010:12:05

# Just because he tricked the school to give his mum a job

0:12:050:12:07

# I know what it's like to have an elder on the staff

0:12:070:12:10

# And when he realises that it's hell I'll have to laugh

0:12:100:12:13

# But first I've got to make it hell and that I'll guarantee

0:12:130:12:16

# Cos Nero may be smart

0:12:160:12:17

# But he ain't half the man as me

0:12:170:12:19

# Yo!

0:12:190:12:20

# Maybe once he was a friend to me

0:12:200:12:22

# Now he's my new best enemy

0:12:220:12:26

# Maybe once he was a friend to me

0:12:260:12:29

# Now he's my new best enemy

0:12:290:12:32

# Maybe once he was a friend to me

0:12:320:12:34

# Now he's my new best enemy. #

0:12:340:12:38

-I've got to go, I'm late.

-We've got plenty of time.

0:12:380:12:40

Yeah, but, erm I'm late for...earliness.

0:12:400:12:43

-Maybe, he's a bit embarrassed.

-Oh, of course, he ain't.

0:12:440:12:47

-He was telling me how lovely it would be to see more of you.

-Oh!

0:12:470:12:50

But he, erm, forgot his embroidery kit, though.

0:12:500:12:53

-He does embroidery?

-Yeah.

0:12:530:12:54

And he's got textiles second period.

0:12:540:12:56

It's a shame there's not like a convenient way to get it to him.

0:12:560:12:59

-I'll do it.

-OK.

0:12:590:13:01

-He can see me then.

-Super.

0:13:010:13:03

Nero, is that your mum?

0:13:060:13:10

SHE MOUTHS

0:13:100:13:12

Sorry.

0:13:150:13:17

Sorry. You forgot your embroidery kit.

0:13:190:13:22

Love you, darling. Love you.

0:13:220:13:25

THEY SNICKER AND GIGGLE

0:13:250:13:28

Chill. I can handle Josh. Always have done.

0:13:310:13:34

Garland, Grant, the bell has gone.

0:13:340:13:36

Why aren't you in lessons? Detention.

0:13:360:13:39

And you, name? HE MUMBLES

0:13:390:13:41

What? Right, fine.

0:13:410:13:43

Well, well, well.

0:13:460:13:48

The famous Josh Carter.

0:13:480:13:50

Detention for you too.

0:13:500:13:52

Now get back to lessons!

0:13:520:13:54

-Thanks a lot, Josh.

-Ain't my name, not even my jumper.

0:13:560:13:59

I'm only at this stupid school because my parents had a row.

0:13:590:14:01

The second they get back together, I'm out of here.

0:14:010:14:03

Well, while you're here, you might want to stay out of trouble.

0:14:030:14:06

Or...

0:14:080:14:10

-HE RAPS:

-# Hey, today might not be all bad

0:14:100:14:13

# Got a licence to kill when there is trouble to be had

0:14:130:14:15

# I can roam alone, wreak havoc on the school

0:14:150:14:17

# Or maybe with these two sidekicks

0:14:170:14:19

# They seem cool

0:14:190:14:20

# Well, maybe one of them

0:14:200:14:22

# But I can run with them

0:14:220:14:23

# Make the lame school day seem fun again

0:14:230:14:25

# OK, I never wanted to be here

0:14:250:14:27

# But now I'm here I might as well be menace of the year

0:14:270:14:30

# Cos what have I got to lose

0:14:300:14:32

# I'm not even Nero here I'm walking around in Josh's shoes

0:14:320:14:35

# And really what's the worst they can do...expel me

0:14:350:14:37

# Mate, I'm leaving anyway There's nothing you can tell me

0:14:370:14:40

# No-one knows my real name Isn't that a real shame

0:14:400:14:42

# Head teacher, listen up, you're about to feel pain

0:14:420:14:45

# Raised hell Now I'm gone leave you speechless

0:14:450:14:47

# And leave Josh to pick up the pieces. #

0:14:470:14:50

THEY ARGUE INDISTINCTLY

0:14:500:14:52

All right, cut it out!

0:14:520:14:54

What's going on here?

0:14:540:14:56

Never mind that, miss. The more important thing here is...

0:14:560:15:00

how long do you reckon you could balance this on your head?

0:15:000:15:03

Two seconds. It's not that great, is it, miss?

0:15:050:15:07

Your name is going on the detention list,

0:15:070:15:10

Josh Carter, and it is never coming off.

0:15:100:15:13

Oh, yes!

0:15:160:15:18

Payback, good times.

0:15:180:15:20

Why did you do that?

0:15:200:15:22

Got you out of trouble, didn't it?

0:15:220:15:24

Yeah, but you are in detention.

0:15:240:15:26

That's where you're wrong. I'm not, Josh Carter is.

0:15:260:15:30

Anyway, what's this creativity award you keep on chatting on about?

0:15:320:15:35

What are you doing? He'd only just shut up about it.

0:15:350:15:38

Eli, not all of Owen's Scout stuff is boring.

0:15:380:15:40

Nero...I'm touched.

0:15:400:15:43

Well, the creativity challenge award

0:15:440:15:48

is one of the 11 Scout Challenge Awards,

0:15:480:15:50

-of which I already have my entrepreneur...

-OK,

0:15:500:15:53

and I was wrong.

0:15:530:15:54

THEY LAUGH

0:15:540:15:56

Fine. Mock.

0:15:560:15:58

You two wouldn't know creativity if it bit you on the...

0:15:580:16:01

..nether regions.

0:16:030:16:04

Erm, excuse me, we are very creative.

0:16:060:16:09

-Well full of ideas.

-Like what?

0:16:090:16:12

Have you forgotten so soon the glory

0:16:120:16:14

that was mug-treeing in the staff room?

0:16:140:16:18

Epic!

0:16:180:16:19

Hang on. I reckon I can fit one more on.

0:16:210:16:25

OK, everyone, if you can just grab some mugs and then come over here.

0:16:280:16:32

Quickly! We need to get out of here.

0:16:320:16:35

If he could just...

0:16:370:16:38

Isn't that Mr Bell's mug?

0:16:380:16:39

Ugh, get off. I'm not doing nothing with no cup with cooties all over it.

0:16:390:16:42

LOUD CRASH

0:16:420:16:46

We should go.

0:16:480:16:49

THEY LAUGH

0:16:520:16:53

-That was truly epic.

-Yeah.

0:16:530:16:56

We should all deserve a badge for that.

0:16:560:16:58

Yeah, but unfortunately being an idiot isn't in the Scout Handbook.

0:16:580:17:03

THEY LAUGH

0:17:030:17:04

Like the moon revolves around the Earth,

0:17:080:17:10

imagination certainly plays a part here at Elmsmere.

0:17:100:17:14

As teachers, we find creative lesson plans and punishments and erm...

0:17:140:17:19

and, erm... Ooh.

0:17:190:17:22

I think we might just stick to less creative shots from now on.

0:17:220:17:26

You certainly used your imagination the day you picked the prefects,

0:17:260:17:29

didn't you, sir?

0:17:290:17:31

Excuse me?

0:17:310:17:33

Everyone thought you completely lost the plot.

0:17:330:17:36

In the Bible,

0:17:360:17:38

Jesus had 12 disciples.

0:17:380:17:43

In the film 12 Angry Men,

0:17:430:17:46

there were 12 angry men.

0:17:460:17:49

Here at Elmsmere, we're going to have seven or eight prefects.

0:17:490:17:54

Couldn't actually get 12,

0:17:540:17:56

but anyway, these are the names of the prefects.

0:17:560:17:59

-Nero Johnson.

-Whoo hoo!

0:18:080:18:11

They've chosen you?

0:18:130:18:15

Eli Grant.

0:18:150:18:17

Yes!

0:18:170:18:18

-Agness Adoo.

-Yay!

0:18:190:18:22

I'm sorry.

0:18:220:18:24

There seems to be some kind of error on Mr Bell's part.

0:18:240:18:27

-Really?

-No.

0:18:270:18:30

-These...these are the prefects you've chosen?

-Oh, yes.

0:18:300:18:33

In that case, carry on.

0:18:330:18:34

Eleesha Rahaad.

0:18:340:18:36

Fleur Murphy.

0:18:400:18:42

Isaac Rodgers.

0:18:430:18:45

Ash Newman

0:18:460:18:48

and finally Zoe-Marie Ingham.

0:18:480:18:52

I hadn't lost the plot.

0:18:540:18:56

I was just making a brave decision.

0:18:560:18:58

-FLEUR:

-Yeah, sure you were, sir(!)

0:18:580:19:00

I don't know, picking Zoe-Marie Ingham to be a prefect...

0:19:000:19:03

now that is quite brave.

0:19:030:19:06

I'd like to say thanks to my friends and family apart from Small Eddie

0:19:060:19:09

who lives next door cos he said I'd never amount to anything.

0:19:090:19:12

-What I'd say to him is...

-Yes, yes, thank you, Zoe-Marie.

0:19:120:19:14

It's true that there have been some disciplinary issues.

0:19:220:19:25

Kicking a raw chicken around canteen.

0:19:250:19:26

But that's exactly why I wanted to make these kids my prefects.

0:19:260:19:30

It is?

0:19:300:19:32

I wanted to give them a challenge, Tony.

0:19:320:19:34

And more than that, I wanted to give them hope.

0:19:340:19:37

I wanted to let them know that unlike some...

0:19:380:19:41

..I haven't given up on them.

0:19:440:19:47

Sorry, excuse me. Excuse me. Excuse me.

0:19:470:19:51

And this list I found on your desk.

0:19:530:19:55

That's nothing to do with the prefects then?

0:19:550:19:58

Absolutely not. No.

0:19:590:20:01

If you'd excuse me, Tony, Mrs O'Brien.

0:20:020:20:05

I picked you two as well.

0:20:050:20:07

You should be thanking me for giving you the chance to prove

0:20:070:20:10

that you weren't just irresponsible delinquents.

0:20:100:20:12

Come off it, sir. We know you just got the lists mixed up.

0:20:120:20:16

How'd you know that?

0:20:160:20:17

I mean...erm, what makes you say a silly thing like that?

0:20:170:20:20

-Harris!

-Mr Bell. Hey, great choice of prefects.

0:20:200:20:24

-Are you trying be funny?

-No, at first I thought it was all a mistake,

0:20:240:20:27

but then I heard what you were saying...

0:20:270:20:29

Of course, it was a mistake! And it was all your fault too.

0:20:290:20:32

-Mine?

-Your detention list got mixed up with the prefects list.

0:20:320:20:36

Oh...

0:20:360:20:38

You are going to make sure that those degenerates

0:20:380:20:41

behave like prefects are supposed to.

0:20:410:20:43

If they mess up,

0:20:440:20:46

someone is going to be in big trouble.

0:20:460:20:51

When you say someone...

0:20:510:20:53

You.

0:20:530:20:55

Anyway, do go on, sir. Didn't mean to interrupt.

0:20:550:20:59

Yeah, well, you did, so...

0:20:590:21:03

Anyway, where was I?

0:21:030:21:05

Right.

0:21:050:21:07

Imaginative use of a resource such is that that you would find...

0:21:070:21:10

Although, to be honest,

0:21:100:21:13

being a prefect wasn't all it was cracked up to be.

0:21:130:21:15

You're so right. It was a proper rubbish idea of Mr Bell's.

0:21:150:21:20

Argh!

0:21:200:21:22

I like the badges, but when do we get the handcuffs?

0:21:220:21:24

Don't be silly. They're not going to give us handcuffs.

0:21:240:21:27

The most we're going to get is a Taser.

0:21:270:21:29

OK, no-one is getting a Taser.

0:21:290:21:31

What?

0:21:310:21:34

You'd have thought there would be a few prefecty perks.

0:21:340:21:38

But it were all work.

0:21:380:21:41

Keep walking.

0:21:410:21:42

-Like a chicken.

-I'm not walking like a chicken.

0:21:440:21:46

You have to, we are prefects.

0:21:460:21:48

And you can't make people walk like chickens.

0:21:480:21:51

Well, what's the point then!?

0:21:510:21:52

The honour. And you get a few little jobs to do.

0:21:520:21:55

-Jobs?

-Well, just a few little things at break time

0:21:550:21:58

like supervising homework or litter patrol, checking the loos...

0:21:580:22:02

I ain't checking no loo jobs.

0:22:020:22:04

-Stop people pushing in the tuck shop queue.

-Yeah, but

0:22:040:22:06

we're the ones doing the pushing in so how is that going to work? Duh!

0:22:060:22:09

-Do you know what? I'm outta here.

-ALL: Yeah!

0:22:090:22:12

-I bet this isn't even real gold.

-Listen!

0:22:120:22:14

Just hold on. Look, I was a prefect once.

0:22:140:22:18

-It's tough, but you get a lot out of it.

-Like...?

0:22:180:22:21

We got free pencils, a special tie,

0:22:210:22:23

-a common room with a pool table and a radio in.

-What room?

0:22:230:22:28

# Is it one of those smart rooms full of widescreen TVs playing cartoons

0:22:300:22:36

# And would it have like solid chocolate seating

0:22:360:22:38

# So even when you're sitting on the chairs you could eat them

0:22:380:22:40

# Bet a few ladies would come if I let them

0:22:400:22:43

# Check my extensive monkey collection

0:22:430:22:46

# The most fun you could have with a lad

0:22:460:22:48

# Forget bachelor, this could be my Ashelor pad

0:22:480:22:51

# Dark, damp dirt Leave all that behind

0:22:510:22:53

# Better than every room in my flat combined

0:22:530:22:56

# Proper, proper posh

0:22:560:22:57

# Seeing is believing

0:22:570:22:59

# Telly in the fireplace

0:22:590:23:00

# Mirrors on the ceiling

0:23:000:23:01

# Big paintings of me on the wall

0:23:010:23:04

# Some butler called Jeeves in the hall

0:23:040:23:06

# Gold-plated toilets

0:23:060:23:07

# Jewels on the sink

0:23:070:23:09

# And only the very, very finest orange drink

0:23:090:23:12

# Picked a perfect palace for a pretty perfect princess

0:23:120:23:14

# Or a queen like me, strictly VIP

0:23:140:23:16

# Basically that's me, my Auntie Jean, my stylist Pierre

0:23:160:23:19

# And a Ch-Chihuahua, Dennis Pierre, also does his hair

0:23:190:23:21

# Yeah, there's teddy bears everywhere

0:23:210:23:23

# Precious jewels are on the staircase

0:23:230:23:25

# All the things these stupid kids'll never have at their place

0:23:250:23:27

# Marshmallow pillows so sick and you know the best bit

0:23:270:23:30

# Stinky, flipping chubby Turner, she ain't on the guest list

0:23:300:23:33

# You can have anything under the sun and moon

0:23:330:23:35

# Do what you want to do in our very own common room

0:23:350:23:38

# In our very own common room

0:23:380:23:41

# In our very own common room

0:23:410:23:43

# You can have anything under the sun and moon

0:23:430:23:45

# Do what you want to do in our very own common room

0:23:450:23:49

# In our very own common room

0:23:490:23:51

# In our very own common room. #

0:23:520:23:54

The problem with that, though,

0:23:540:23:55

was that Mr Harris had raised everyone's hopes up a bit too high.

0:23:550:23:59

The muppet.

0:24:000:24:02

It might not seem like much,

0:24:020:24:04

but it's all yours.

0:24:040:24:07

Where's the pool table? Where's the radio?

0:24:100:24:13

Yeah, this stinks.

0:24:130:24:14

Wait! If we all pull together, we can really make something of this place.

0:24:140:24:17

I'd like to make something of your face.

0:24:170:24:19

I would've thought you'd known better, sir.

0:24:200:24:23

That's what happens when people's imaginations run away with them.

0:24:230:24:27

Like when Sami Taylor had the idea he could eat that Christmas tree.

0:24:270:24:31

It ends in disappointment.

0:24:310:24:34

And tinsely teeth.

0:24:340:24:35

One of the few safe places where creativity is allowed to roam free,

0:24:390:24:43

within carefully set limits,

0:24:430:24:45

is Elmsmere's beloved school assemblies.

0:24:450:24:47

THEY PLAY MUSIC

0:24:510:24:59

What they should do, yeah, is let us have a little sleep

0:25:020:25:04

like they did in primary school.

0:25:040:25:06

Assembly is a valuable opportunity

0:25:060:25:07

for the school community to join together.

0:25:070:25:09

Yeah, but my idea would be a valuable oppo-thingy

0:25:090:25:11

for us to have a little sleep.

0:25:110:25:13

-WHISPERS:

-Psst. Excuse me.

0:25:130:25:15

I think you've dropped something.

0:25:150:25:17

HE MAKES A FART NOISE

0:25:180:25:19

-GIRLS LAUGH

-That wasn't me. It wasn't me!

0:25:190:25:22

Quiet, girl!

0:25:220:25:23

Sittin' in a big hot room listenin' to Johnny Doo-Dah

0:25:260:25:28

and teachers blabber on about pointless stuff like goin' to uni

0:25:280:25:31

or raisin' money for orphans or stopping global swarming

0:25:310:25:34

or whatever. It's an insult is what it is.

0:25:340:25:35

Slow down, you're talking gibberish.

0:25:350:25:37

No, I flippin' well officially ain't. Ask that snarky cow

0:25:370:25:40

Miss Wilkinson, she says my knowledge of modern languages

0:25:400:25:42

is "totally non-existent," not that it's any of her business,

0:25:420:25:45

who does she think she is.

0:25:450:25:46

Now, I'm sure you all want to know what this is all about.

0:25:460:25:51

Three little words,

0:25:510:25:52

Good. Buddy. Points.

0:25:520:25:54

Being a good buddy to your class, to your teachers...

0:25:550:26:00

-Laters, ladies.

-..and to yourselves...

0:26:000:26:02

-Where...where you going?

-It's time for payback.

0:26:020:26:06

..the discipline issues at Elmsbury together.

0:26:060:26:08

Who's he calling a discipline issue?

0:26:080:26:11

-He's a discipline issue.

-Sh!

0:26:110:26:12

I ain't even done anything disruptive. That's well outrageous.

0:26:120:26:15

Thank you, Zoe-Marie.

0:26:150:26:16

I found assembly allowed me as once and future head

0:26:180:26:21

to introduce many new ideas designed to improve school life.

0:26:210:26:25

-It was an unparalleled avenue with...

-An unpara-boring-nue, more like.

0:26:250:26:28

'Part from that time that Josh Carter secretly recorded

0:26:280:26:31

Mr Harris in the shower.

0:26:310:26:32

Let's achieve the level of discipline that

0:26:340:26:37

I know this school is capable of.

0:26:370:26:39

OVER LOUD SYSTEM: # Oh, Mr Shower Man. Oh, baby... #

0:26:390:26:46

# Scrubbing my face ain't no disgrace

0:26:460:26:49

# Yeah... #

0:26:490:26:51

-Is that you, Harris?

-It could be anybody.

0:26:510:26:54

# Dexter, ooh-oh-la-la

0:26:540:26:57

# It's so Dextie

0:26:570:26:59

# Washing my pits

0:26:590:27:00

# That's my pits

0:27:000:27:02

# Oh, yeah

0:27:020:27:04

# Here comes the shampoo-ooo! #

0:27:040:27:09

(Josh!)

0:27:090:27:10

Mr Harris is well hopeless. He's like one of them toy dolls

0:27:100:27:13

that cries until you pick them up but alive and a man.

0:27:130:27:15

-FLEUR:

-That was a very IMAGINATIVE description, don't you think, sir?

0:27:150:27:19

And action.

0:27:240:27:25

How to sum up Elmsmere's approach to creativity?

0:27:270:27:31

Well, as a wise man once said,

0:27:310:27:33

"If you wish to be out front,

0:27:330:27:35

"act as if you're behind."

0:27:350:27:38

-And that says it all, really.

-Is that a quote about bums, sir?

0:27:380:27:42

Cut.

0:27:420:27:43

Mr Bell's video prospectus focuses on the school's ongoing mission to 'imagine the impossible and make it happen'.
