Summary

For this Teaching Challenge, Madness frontman Suggs returns to his old school with the hope of passing on the songwriting skills that helped make his band so successful.

He makes his way to Quintin Kynaston School in north London. This time though, instead of misbehaving as he used to, Suggs takes on the challenge of teaching today's pupils. Will he succeed?

The band Madness became famous for their videos and extraordinary anthems about ordinary lives. One of their biggest selling hits was the song Baggy Trousers, which celebrated the art of school mischief as practised by members of the band in their youth.
