Pupil Luke Pendle has kept it secret that he lives in a care home, but his girlfriend Siobhan, suspicious that he keeps his home life secret, follows him and finds out. She confides in Amy, who informs the whole school, leading to Luke going on the rampage, for which Max gives him litter collecting duties. After another row, Luke steals and crashes Max's car, but Kim urges the executive head to be understanding and not call the police. Max is also thwarted when, behind Rachel's back, he tries to float a scheme splitting students into groups according to their ability, and Grantly leads a petition against it. Not only do several John Foster's staff sign but Kim does too and the scheme is abandoned. Tom tries to bond with Josh, despite the boy's resistance. The tensions between the pupils of John Fosters and Waterloo Road are still growing as Michaela and her gang plan to attack Lindsay outside of school.
