HEAD TEACHER HOPE HADDON (JEMIMA KIRKE) FROM SEX EDUCATION’S MOORDALE SECONDARY SCHOOL – A WOMAN WHO SHOULD BE A SPANKER

Hope Haddon (Jemima Kirke)

The great reformer, sent to rid Moordale Secondary School of its reputation as “The Sex School” in the third series of Sex Education. Hope Haddon is a formidable and unpopular Head Teacher, determined to fulfil that role

SEX EDUCATION, THE TV SERIES

Initially presenting herself as a fresh educational breeze and a very young head teacher, close to the students in age, she gains an off the block popularity

But soon this facade fades as she proves to be an old-fashioned and suppressive leader. Ignoring non-confirmatory sexual groups, initiating abstinence sex education and, horror of horrors, bringing back school uniform

As well as such punishments as public humiliation

I cannot help but think that she would have had more success, if she had reintroduced corporal punishment to the school. And why not, all the actors playing her students are well into their 20s and more than old enough to give their consent 🙂

And I suspect that her character would have been more than happy to swing a slipper and/or a cane at the backside of a misbehaving subject of the school. It is very easy to imagine her saying, “My study. 9:30am”

    • It has all the elements of what should be a terrible show, Roz. But somehow it works and is watchable. If you saw the show, I don’t think you would have any problem in seeing Hope as a very old-fashioned type of teacher 🙂

  2. I know neither her nor the show, so I’ll take your word for it. I’ve never been a big fan of anything extreme in school settings. Like I couldn’t help but roll my eyes at the Harry Potter story arc where Dumbledore was replaced by that ‘pink cat lady’.

    • Put your tongue firmly in your cheek and don’t take it too seriously and I think that you might enjoy it, morningstar. Although I think that you might be critical of the attempts at teenage psychology, I was

    • It’s not the most clever series ever, Red. But if you just turn your brain off, sit back and enjoy the ride, there is a good chance that you will find it fun. I haven’t really had a look at her tattoos, I will check them out
