Settling In Jan 8, 1982 Roland avoids "GCE" (Gripper's Cash Enterprise) by accompanying Miss Mooney through the school gates. Gripper nabs Zammo and Jonah's cash, but they have no intention to continue paying him indefinitely. Roly cuts himself in woodwork - did he do it on purpose so he could go home? Annette wants revenge against Zammo and Jonah for their stink bomb damaging her shoes, and buys her own stink bomb. Jonah and Zammo goes to see Mr. Hopwood to try to get something done about Gripper, but without confrontation. Mr. Hopwood accuses Gripper, who denies it, but is forced to empty his pockets and donate the sizable amount of money to the school fund.

Annette lies in wait for Zammo with her stink bomb, she throws it, but her aim is off and she gets Gripper instead.

Sex Education Jan 12, 1982 A lesson on human biology is announced, with a letter to be taken home for permission to be sought. Can H3 be sensible about the subject? What will Anita Unsworth's Gran say? Matthew Cartwright would rather not do the lesson, and takes some stick from older sister Pamela. Pogo tries to make a few bob out of the biology textbook's "disgusting pictures". Claire's mother speaks to Mrs. McClusky concerned that her daughter is too innocent for the forthcoming biology lesson. How did Matthew Cartwright lose his trousers? It's all chaotic until Mrs McClusky asks the form on their opinion, and the conclusion is they do want sex education. Pogo and Gripper are interrogated by McClusky about their bad behaviour.

Text Books Jan 15, 1982 School cuts are being noticed, what with the lack of a Technical Drawing teacher, and book shortages. The Computer Club wants to buy a new computer for £1200, and the PTA tries to come up with some fund-raising ideas. A "Sponsored Spell" is on the cards. Can Gripper spell any other word than "G.B.H"? Gripper sees the text book shortages as a way of earning money, getting his supplies from St. Mary's girls. He ropes in Pogo as an unwilling accomplice to sell them. Unfortunately, Gripper's muggings have not gone unreported, and a spot inspection by Mr. Keating brings the sorry business to an end. The money raised towards buying a computer gets used instead for buying new text books.

Instruments Jan 19, 1982 Belinda starts learning the Clarinet, an expensive instrument that she becomes paranoid about getting damaged.

Annette's joke backfires when they find the clarinet gone, and Mr. Baxter tells the girls off when he finds them skulking around. Belinda's mum is annoyed when she finds out the loss, but the clarinet is insured: Fay and Annette have to fork out the first £20 from their savings.

Sports Trials Jan 22, 1982 Why has Annette brought two eggs to cookery? Benny Green has inspired Zammo to take the Athletic Trials. Fay is pleased to be selected for the hockey team against Brookdale. Mr. McDuffy is holding auditions for the "school review".

Roly's entry in the shot putt is a disaster. Fay is praised for their team winning the hockey practice, but Belinda has a clash of interest between hockey and her music. Roland can't believe it - he is on the list for the school review!
