Jenny Young
"Tanya's always so well turned-out", "Karen's so clever"; Jenny is understandably fed up with comparisons with her sisters, but herself is less worried about how she looks - or what boys think of her. Instead she chooses to channel her energies into whatever she's campaigning about. Jenny has a social conscience and prides herself on not following the cult of celebrity or succumbing to marketing. She is good friends with Jake, despite their differring personalities, and is also a bit of a tomboy who likes a good game of football.

Connections
  Best mate: Jake
Enemy: Lucy

Background
  Year 7 Jenny embarks upon a self-cleaning hair experiment - she hopes not to have to wash her hair for six weeks to prove shampoo isn't a necessity but she ends up with nits! Jenny takes Tanya's instruction to support Karen at the dance contest too literally; she and Jake make an exhibition of themselves and end up incurring the wrath of Miss Gayle.

Year 8 Jake and Jenny organise a protest when footballer Dwayne Miller comes to Grange Hill - but it fails to have any impact when Dwayne is smuggled in through the back entrance to avoid the placard wavers. The war between Lucy and Jenny intensifies, with Jenny increasingly exposing Lucy as vain and self-interested. Jenny befriends a new Year 7, Patsy, but is not impressed when she discovers Patsy has been laying the sob stories on thick.
