Archie is the embodiment of the school – rich, privileged and an academic high achiever. The rules of Archie’s social media and online existence are set by a ‘lad’ culture he doesn’t really feel he belongs to.
Natalie has won herself a scholarship to attend the school – she is working class, clever, and from the opposite background to Archie’s – but they nevertheless instantly bond. Natalie is the outsider that Archie feels himself in part to be.
Then one night at a party it all comes to a head, boundaries are crossed, trust is broken, and nothing will ever be the same between them. But how will the school deal with the accusation Natalie makes against ‘one of their own’?”
