The popular strand returns in a new school as we go Educating Cardiff.

Head teacher Joy Ballard and her team of staff are turning around one of the worst performing schools in Cardiff. With the introduction of Joy's house system, the kids now feel a sense of home and pride and things are looking up.

Meanwhile, Jess is one of the hardest workers in school and is never off, but she struggles with the social aspect of being a teen, and Mrs Ballard needs to help her learn the skills of interacting with her peers. Is a school newspaper the answer?
