Waterloo Road was first broadcast on 9th March 2006 on BBC 1! Since then, the show has gone from strength to strength and gained a huge fanbase, some from other countries around the world. On 2nd April 2014, the BBC gave the devastating news that Waterloo Road is going to be axed from our TV screens in 2015. We can't let that happen! Waterloo Road is one of the best TV shows out there! PLEASE sign the petition, and maybe the BBC will finally listen to its viewers!!

Maybe the producers of Waterloo Road don't realise, but Waterloo Road teaches better than any school in the country! It teaches viewers on how to deal with events that can happen to anyone, whether it be mental illness, teenage pregnancy, rape, sexuality, cancer, addiction... the list is endless! And you can even learn some of the educational requirements real teachers struggle to teach, like Pythagoras and details from English texts.
