Amy Porter is a former pupil of Waterloo Road who came from John Fosters, the affiliated public school. She is rebellious and was the girlfriend of Finn Sharkey before he was with Sambuca Kelly

She is a natural leader with a rebellious streak and loves the drama of confrontation. There isn't a cause Amy won’t adopt nor will she miss an opportunity to take offence.

Amy joined Waterloo Road in series five (as part of the merger with the public school John Fosters). She has argued with the likes of Lauren Andrews, Sambuca Kelly and Michaela White. She became heavily embroiled in the girl gang culture and was a lead antagonist in the violence that followed.

When Finn Sharkey joined later in the series, this melodramatic couple soon brought the worst out in each other and Finn eventually drove Amy to agree to suicide pact, but Chris caught them in time.

In series, six Amy enjoyed a quieter year, growing closer to Lauren Andrews after she and Sambuca drifted apart.

In series seven, Amy really struggles to cope with Sam’s diagnosis. She left the series when her mother got a new job in North Yorkshire.


Amy can be hard with other people; she shows this with Sambuca Kelly.
