Gibraltar School was founded as a school for young ladies by the two late Misses Pye. The long-suffering teachers now have their lives made miserable, not only by their pupils, but also by the present headmistress, Miss Rowe.


Since Gibraltar is a private school, they resign themselves to the fact that there is little they can do about it, but help comes from an unexpected quarter.

Girton College, Cambridge, 1896: Elizabeth Welsh is preparing for battle. Girton is the first college in Britain to accept women.


Whilst the men graduate, the women leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking', an unnatural, educated woman, considered both unquallified and unmariageable by an unforgiving society.


Principal Welsh is determined to win the girls' right to graduate, whatever the cost.
