Mr Malachay

Type: Toady to his colleagues, to the pupils, toad.
School Days: 2003-2006

No malarkey! Mr Malachay (Chris) started as head of sport and it wasn't long before he was promoted to head of ICT. A firm believer in making the best of what you've got, Mr Malachay worked his way up and believed there was no excuse for not giving 100% at all times. Malachay seemed to be everywhere at once and was a formidable force against the pupils. He wouldn't stand any nonsense and was annoyed by time wasters.

Totally ruthless, he resented Mrs Bassinger for getting the top job and right to the end had designs on making Grange Hill his own. Chris also filled in as a French teacher and personal trainer. With a permanently high opinion of himself it's no wonder he was a slime-ball to some, though others found him charming.

REASON FOR LEAVING: In a first for Grange Hill, Malachay defected to its arch-rival, St Joseph's. Maybe they had a headship going.

Series 26 Malachay clashes with Ian several times, mostly because of his desire to sell the playing fields. At the end of the series he is made head of IT. Mr Malachay also discovers Josh and Martin's webcam and orders the removal of their unofficial site.

Series 27 Malachay thinks his moment has come when he learns Mr Robson won't be coming back. He doesn't take any nonsense from Taylor and puts Max in detention after Martin does his homework for him.

Series 28 Year 11 are furious when Malachay tries to take the credit for the radio station idea. He swings the DVD vote in his favour, much to Spencer's fury. Chris lusts after attractive newcomer Miss Adams and the pair are soon caught in an passionate clinch.

Series 29 After three years Mr Malachay leaves Grange Hill to teach at St. Joseph's. He is disappointed by his lack of leaving presents on the last day!
