Back to School, Paperback / softback Book



The year is 1969 and Jack Sheffield is a young teacher in need of a job.

In a room full of twenty-nine other newly qualified teachers, he's overjoyed when he's appointed to Heather View Primary.

Jack is excited to start his first year there and to begin shaping young minds in a beautiful new location on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. But Heather View isn't as idyllic as it first sounds.

In fact, it looks more like a prison than a primary school.

With less than adequate funding and a head teacher who doesn't seem to care, it's no easy task to give the kids the education they deserve.

But Jack's determined to do just that. Full of warmth and good humour, Back to School is like taking a nostalgic walk through the past to a simpler time... _____________________What readers are saying: ***** 'I felt I was transported back in time.
