Twins Debbie and Carol Lowe sit a scholarship exam to Underwood Boarding School, but then they wish they hadn’t once they find out how snobby the Underwood girls are. However, they do pass the scholarship exam and have to attend Underwood, as its first day pupils. But the snobby pupils do not make them welcome, and Virginia Fishenden is their worst enemy.
Eventually Virginia pulls a trick on the twins that backfires and she nearly burns the school down. Virginia is shocked into confessing and her ashamed mother withdraws her from the school. The twins are then accepted by the other girls.
