Fourth episode of Series 3.


When pupil Ben McNulty cuts himself, Steph immediately rushes him to hospital and it transpires that she knows he is HIV positive due to his drug-taking birth mother, but has kept the fact a secret. There is an immediate backlash by angry parents, and as a result Ben decides to quit the school.

Jack's resolute championing of Ben and efforts to persuade him to stay impress Davina and they get engaged. Steph, who has high hopes after their night of passion, turns to Matt for consolation, only to learn that he is gay. Donte and Chlo return to live with Tom but Donte's attempt to give his wife a romantic evening is scuppered when he finds her in bed with Brett.
