Ferg Gottin is sent to Horrid High by his parents, who don’t seem to care very much for him.

Ferg Gottin has extraordinary skills but less- than ordinary parents. His mother searches for schools where she can ‘dump’ Ferg and forget about him and comes across Horrid High. Ferg has to manage and cope in his new school. A humorous story of a perfectly ghastly school! Everything is horrid here from Chef Gretta’s cooking to Master Mynus’ math class. The worst is Principal Perverse. However, Ferg manages to make four incredible friends and they learn to survive in school.
