Based on the classic novel by Thomas Hughes, Tom Brown's School Days chronicles the trials and tribulations of one boy's life at an exclusive public school in nineteenth century England.
The story follows Tom as he joins life at Rugby, a school where mob-rule prevails and the younger students live with constant, terrifying and relentless bullying by the older students.
When a new headmaster, Dr Arnold, is employed he inherits an institution where discipline has almost been replaced by anarchy. Despite fierce opposition from his staff and the older pupils he embarks on a programme of radical reforms that gradually enforce values of trust, loyalty and respect amongst the boys.
Tom Brown's School Days is the timeless story of one schoolboy's courage to stand up and be counted, and of one man's vision and determination to reform an archaic and inhumane schooling system.
