Dinner lady. No one has ever heard her speak.
From the school. Don’t get on her bad side.
An old lady, who lives opposite Rory, who pops over, every time Mrs Branagan has to go out. Rory likes her, mainly because she has a sausage dog called Wilkins.
Headmistress. Her full name is Ms Birkinstead, BA, MA, NPQH (because she has loads of qualifications). We call her Ms Turkey-head (because she looks like a Turkey).
The most gorgeous dinner lady in the whole wide world.
Dinner lady. We call her The Toad. Her eyes BULGE as she splats down your mince.
Cleverest boy in Rory’s year.

In Rory’s class.
