Imelda Davis

School Days: 1986-1987 (first appearance in 1985 Christmas special)

A thoroughly nasty piece of work, Imelda Davis made life hell for teachers and classmates in the mid-1980s. Imelda was self-proclaimed leader of the Terrorhawk Witches and with gang-mates Helen, Georgina and Sharon they did everything from stuffing fibreglass down Ziggy's back to extorting money off first years. She wouldn't think twice about doing Gonch over to get her hands on the profits of his toast bar enterprise. In class she was thoroughly disruptive, wrecking school property, refusing to do as she was told and exploiting Mr Scott's ineptitude to great advantage.

Soon Imelda found herself isolated as one by one her friends deserted her, but this only made her more of a loose cannon. Things came to a head after a display of vindictive violence towards Ronnie Birtles, and Mrs McClusky decided enough was enough. Such was Imelda's behaviour at this point questions were being asked about her unstable behaviour and it was no secret she was seeing the educational psychologist. So did Imelda's problems have an underlying cause? We shall never know...

Series 9: Imelda upsets newcomer Ziggy Greaves when she takes a frog from the school pond. An altercation leads to Ziggy pushing her in the pond and she swears revenge. Imelda leaves Ziggy writhing in agony by stuffing fibreglass down his shirt.

Series 10 With her friends deserting her, Imelda becomes even more disruptive and is a thorn in the side of Mr Scott. She attacks Ronnie and steals the money Ziggy has raised for Danny Kendall. After a stand-off in E3's form room, Mrs McClusky expels Imelda and her mum reacts badly to suggestions she may be disturbed.

REASON FOR LEAVING: Imelda was expelled in Year 9 after her behaviour became too much for Grange Hill to cope with. She was never heard of since.

FAMILY: Lived with her mum, a factory worker who seemed indifferent to the school's concerns. As far as mum was concerned, Imelda's problems lay with her father not being around.

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: Top Dog at HMP Holloway, perhaps?
