Doreen, Beryl and Grace, three pupils of Tinhorn Park School, have entered a knock-out quiz contest organised by a news-paper. The girls hope to win the first prize of £1000 to prevent their small, private school being closed. Secretly, the deputy headmistress’s brother, Geoffrey Pickard, is plotting to get the school’s land as a factory site. Miss Pickard, who has been promised a good job in the factory, is determined to prevent the Quiz Kids winning the money. Having won the final of the Wessex area contest, the girls relax before the first round of the inter-county section by practising hockey on the morning of Parents’ Day.
