Mrs Knuckle

School Days: 2003-2004
Type: Dragon (or should that be soup dragon!)

Mrs Knuckle turned up at Grange Hill in 2003, reluctantly taking a job as cookery teacher as the school struggled to overcome the devastating effects of the previous year's fire. A little trust goes a long way, Mrs Bassinger warned her, but the formidable Irish woman was having none of it and promised to be the most fearsome teacher ever to stalk Grange Hill's corridors.

But the Mrs Knuckle we saw was generally a figure of fun. She hated being called "Miss" and was a stickler for hygiene, something she put above all else in her classes. Her teaching methods were generally behind the times - imagine the horror on Year 8's face when she showed how to cook chickens' feet! But her organisational skills were lacking. Basically Mrs Knuckle was in interfering battleaxe who generally thought she knew best - though often she didn't!

REASON FOR LEAVING: Thought to have retired.

Series 26 Mrs Knuckle leaves Year 7 unattended to sort out a noisy class next door and comes back to find a full scale food fight in progress. A pancake tossed by Togger peels from the ceiling and lands right on her head!

Series 27: Mrs Knuckle tries to organise a school concert but fails to attract any interest. Togger brings chicken claws into school; when Mrs Knuckle sees them she gives an impromptu class on how to cook them! At the end of the year, Mrs Knuckle leaves the school band in the lurch and Jeremy steps in to conduct them.

ASSOCIATES: Mrs Bassinger, Mr Robson

CURRENT WHEREABOUTS: Now retired and spoiling Mr Knuckle with her culinary expertise!
