From the publisher

George Harpole, acting head of a primary school, is determined to climb the career ladder.  The way ahead to teaching success seems clear, but he is hampered by his honesty, fair mindedness, and his fellow teachers.  The hugely comic tale unfolds through a series of school logs, notes, letters and memos.

“The funniest and perhaps the truest story about running a school that I have ever read”. Frank Muir
