"We really want it to feel like you’re seeing your old friends again, but you’re going to see new facets of those old friends.

"Everyone’s kind of really growing up and i think a lot of that is to do with this new headteacher who has brought this completely opposing ethos to Moordale, and the students in the wake of that are kind of figuring out a lot about shame and kind of learning how to embrace their individuality when someone is trying to stifle it."
