Things have gone downhill since Gormsby was sacked and the gibbering wreck of a principal, Roger Dasent, was taken away in an ambulance. The scheming Steve from Guidance finds himself in charge of a school where gambling, pornography and drug abuse are spiralling out of control. And that's just in the staff room.
In this second series Gormsby is reinstated to solve a car bombing, coach the first XV in their annual game against the local prison, organise a school camp and use ballroom dancing to teach the boys gallantry.
With amalgamation with a posh girls school looming Gormsby addresses the sticky business of sex.
Seven Periods with Mr. Gormsby is an unrepentant politically incorrect, roller coaster romp about an extraordinarily eccentric secondary school teacher, who the Education Review Office in their last assessment described as follows "Mr Gormsby is an out-dated, reactionary, racist, sexist teacher completely out of touch with educational theory in the second millennium. He defies the curriculum in every subject and is a disgrace to the profession. He should have no place in any state or private school. We will close Tepapawai Boys High and appoint a commissioner if Mr Gormsby is not replaced forthwith.
