In this popular and charming drama’s second season (which is far removed from the bleakness of 1980s Grange Hill), teenagers Nick (Connor) and Charlie (Locke) navigate their new relationship, while Tara (Corinna Brown) and Darcy (Kizzy Edgell) face unforeseen challenges and Tao (William Gao) and Elle (Yasmin Finney) try to work out if they can ever be more than just friends. With exams on the horizon, a school trip to Paris and a prom to plan, the engaging gang has a lot to juggle as its members journey through the next stages of life, love and friendship. The young actors are all impressive, but Locke and Connor stand out.
