The students of Waterloo Road are starting their university applications, and Josh is unsure of what his future holds. Tom is adamant he knows what's best for his son, but Josh is getting frustrated by his dad always breathing down his neck. Lorraine's colleague Ray comes into the school to help with her idea of getting the kids involved with business in the real world, if they want to avoid the route of university. Instantly, Madi takes a shine to the handsome young man. But little does she know that Sian's been dating him. When Josh impresses Ray and Lorraine at the training day, Lorraine immediately offers him a job in Manchester. Josh is thrilled at the opportunity, but Tom is reluctant to let his son into the real world and miss out on a place at university. Then, after school, Madi asks Ray to help her move some boxes. He's reluctant, but after she cries and explains how bad her life's been recently, he takes pity on her and she makes a move on him. Just at that moment, Sian walks in and is horrified with what she finds. After dumping him, Sian and Madi move forward and rebuild their relationship.
