    Set shortly after the end of World War II, confusion reigns when St Swithin's Girls School is accidentally billeted at Nutborne College: a boys school. The two heads, Wetherby Pond and Muriel Whitchurch, try to cope with the ensuing chaos, as the children and staff attempt to live in the newly cramped conditions (it being impossible to share dormitories or other facilities), and seek to prevent the children taking advantage of their new opportunities.
