Six of the best … Ja’mie King clips



1. Ja’mie introduces herself

As an exchange student from private school across town, Ja’mie looks down on Summer Heights High and its “bogan” students. “People always go, ‘private schools create better citizens’ but I would say they create better quality citizens.” It’s Educating Yorkshire via Mean Girls.


2. Ja’mie explains the hierarchy

Confidence breeds popularity and nobody has self-belief like Ja’mie. Having found herself in with the popular girls in Summer Heights she is quick to establish just where they actually fit in the grand scheme of things.


3. Ja’mie sets the agenda for prom

Having decided that her fellow year 11s deserve a formal to celebrate the end of their school year, Ja’mie is put in charge of organising it. Here the tricky subject of same-sex couples arises and Ja’mie is not keen. “Is there an easy way we can discourage them, like saying ‘please can you not come?'”


4. Ja’mie and her friends fall out

Inevitably, this queen bee clashes with her group of friends. As she tries to sit next to one of the girls in class, she is denied and told to stop embarrassing herself. Cue the classic teenage burn: “Do you know what would be embarrassing? Having your head.”


5. Ja’mie and her friends make up

Keen to get her group back together, Ja’mie calls a counselling session with her girlfriends. “I’m a guest at this school and everyone should be really nice to me,” she says, before to being racist to her friend Bec.


6. Ja’mie dumps her boyfriend

Ja’mie’s boyfriend Sebastian is four years her junior, and she catches him texting another girl. “He’s such a 12-year-old arsehole. He made me think I’m less hot!”
