It's her last three months at Hillford Girls Grammar, and school captain Ja'mie King (Chris Lilley) knows just how she wants to spend them: looking quiche (one step beyond hot) with her satellite gaggle of prefect girlfriends; keeping less-fortunate classmates in line through detention and ridicule; snagging the best-looking new guy at Kelton Boys Grammar; convincing her doting dad to let her host a party at their house; and, above all, winning the prestigious Hillford Medal for the Best Girl in Year 12. But the universe has other plans in store for the conniving 'queen bee' of Hillford.
Showing off the talents that appear to make her a lock for the Hillford Medal, Ja'mie performs a dance solo in drama class, scoffing at a competing piece from Erin. Later, at choir, Ja'mie practices an original song based on the school motto, Teaching in Order to Learn. After rehearsal, she sets up a private performance for Mitchell in the auditorium, even though boys aren't permitted in the Hillford halls.
To demonstrate Christian charity (a prerequisite for the Hillford Medal), Ja'mie arranges for Kwami, a Ugandan teen from the projects, to live with her for a month in the King mansion. After introducing Kwami to her friends and Mr. Hayes, Ja'mie brings him home just in time for the Perfect Prefect Party, where she hopes to take her relationship with Mitchell to the next level.
Ja'mie is devastated to learn that her best friend Madison has been seeing Mitchell. Taking several days off from school, she falls into a deep but short-lived depression, mapping out a Hillford comeback with the help of Cody and Kwami.
Ja'mie returns to Hillford with a new rebel image, only to find her reputation tarnished by a salacious video that jeopardizes her chances at winning the Hillford Medal. Meanwhile, convinced that Mitchell wants her back, Ja'mie mends fences with Madison as Kwami is kicked out of her house.
Series finale. Determined to have the last word at Presentation Day, Ja'mie enlists her fellow prefects to join her in a surprise performance destined to change all of their lives. After the dust settles, Ja'mie makes a final splash with Mitchell as she embarks on the next phase of her life.

Razor-sharp school satire is super edgy and salty.
