Luke Pendle is a former student at Waterloo Road. He is popular and good-looking but his funny-guy persona is hiding a secret about his background that even his girlfriend Siobhan doesn’t know - he lives in a care home. Knowing Siobhan is from a nicely-off family with pretty outspoken views, Luke has been careful to keep his background a secret - making sure he always walks Siobhan home and fobbing off any suggestion of going back to his. He dreads the thought of his secret coming out, and how Siobhan will react.
Siobhan doesn't seem to care about his background, and after one very interesting day they sort things out and are still are happy couple.
He does not return for any episodes following this - it is teased that he and his girlfriend had broken up. However he is in year 11, meaning he may have transferred or moved away.
