It is the general view at Eckleton school that there never was such a house of slackers as Kay's.
Fenn, head of house and county cricketer, does his best to impose some discipline but is continually undermined by his house-master, the meddlesome and ineffectual Mr Kay.
After the Summer Concert fiasco, Mr Kay resolves to remove Fenn from office and puts his house into special measures, co-opting Kennedy, second prefect of Blackburn's, as reluctant troubleshooter with a brief to turn the place around.
But without the backing of Fenn, and the whole house hostile towards him, how can he achieve the impossible...?
