Carrie is a last-minute arrival, only finding a place at Waterloo Road because Havelock High was full. Capable and intelligent, a star pupil in the making, Carrieā€™s been moved up a year in several of her classes. We might sense that, with a domineering mother at home, being at school is in itself something of a release. Her intelligence and emotional maturity get on the wrong side of Lisa from the off but, lucky for Carrie, she has plenty more friends.
