Rachel is less confident than her streetwise best friend Lucy, and her easy-going nature means others will take advantage. She enjoys a priviliged home life with a generous clothes allowance and skiing holidays - and sometimes she'll unintentionally rub Lucy's nose in it with tales of her dad's job. But she'll go along with pretty much anything Lucy wants to do, although this year she starts to think for herself a bit more.

  Best mate: Lucy
Grandfather: Frank Hooper

  Year 7 Rachel and Lucy wind up Bryn at the start of the school year. The Wannabees "persuade" Rachel to hand over her watch, but best mate Lucy notices it's missing and forces Chloe to return it.

Year 8 Lucy and Rachel fight when Rachel accidentally breaks Lucy's MP3 player and offers to replace it with a better one. She replaces the MP3 player with a like-for-like one and they make up. Rachel is forced to confront her estranged grandfather - Frank Hooper, a regular visitor to the CLC, and they start to get to know each other.
