Suzanne Ross

School Days: 1981-1984

School and Suzanne were like chalk and cheese - they just didn't mix. After keeping her nose clean in the first year Suzanne caused headaches for her teachers, especially Mr Hopwood. It's like she felt school was above her; she resented being treated like a child but forever acted like one with her outbursts and non-compliance. She refused to wear school uniform and was determined to make life difficult - all the detentions in the world had no effect. A shame really; Suzanne was a highly intelligent, streetwise girl who could look after herself. This came in handy at the UN weekend.

FAMILY: Suzanne lived with her despairing mother; she couldn't handle Suzanne either and begged the school to help. Dad walked out on them when she was two; Suzanne has never really experienced a father figure.

  Series 4: Suzanne is introduced with the new intake in H1.

Series 5: Suzanne starts bunking off to work in a clothes shop. Mr Hopwood catches her and takes her to task. Suzanne finds growing up hard and can't face "that flippin' curse" for the next forty years.

Series 6: Suzanne chose media studies but is down for geography. She accuses Mr Hopwood of fobbing her off in her attempts to get moved. Suzanne organises an underground school newspaper, refuses to wear uniform and Mum's at her wits' end.

Series 7: Suzanne goes on the UN weekend with Pogo, Glenroy, Stewpot and Claire. She leaves school as soon as she turns 16; life is not what she expected but she puts on a brave face. Scruffy offers to enquire about college for her. Suzanne puts Mrs McClusky in her place when tackled about her dress!
