New characters will include teenage twins Lenny and Lisa Brown, played by Joe Slater and Caitlin Gillespie, and recently-qualified science teacher Sue Spark, played by Vanessa Hehir. Lenny and Lisa will feature in episode one of the new series with Audrey McFall, played by Georgie Glen, as she suspects they are being neglected at home.
Mark Benton, whose popular character Daniel 'Chalky' Chalk left Waterloo Road for a new job in London, will also return to the show for an undisclosed number of episodes.
Other storylines in the new series will explore how new Headmistress Christine Mulgrew, played by Laurie Brett, is settling into her role, while Deputy Head Simon Lowsley, played by Richard Mylan, hides a secret which could affect his career and unsettle the staff.
