BBC Three has announced the cast for its forthcoming new comedy Bad Education, written by and starring Jack Whitehall as Alfie; the worst teacher ever to grace the British education system and is a bigger kid than the kids he teaches. The teacher your kids would love but parents would hate!
The show will also star an ensemble cast including Mathew Horne (Gavin And Stacey) as Fraser, the school’s headmaster, who tragically longs to be as cool as Alfie. He’s the teacher who just wants to be everyone’s ‘best mate’ and is prone to massive and very public mishaps.
Sarah Solemani (Him And Her) plays Miss Gulliver. She is the school biology teacher and the apple of Alfie’s eye. She cares deeply about the school and the students.
Michelle Gomez (Green Wing) plays Pickwell, the deputy head. She is an ‘old school’ teacher and can’t stand the other younger teachers. She’s a disciplinarian who wants Creationism put back on the syllabus and would prefer a school without children at all!
