Classic drama based on the novel by Thomas Hughes in which a boy tries to survive the bully-ridden world of Rugby Boarding School. In a bid to counter its reputation as a wild school, Rugby appoints the stern Dr. Thomas Arnold (Cedric Hardwicke) as headmaster. Arnold's friend, Squire Brown (Ernest Cossart), elects to send his son, Tom (Jimmy Lydon), to the school as a gesture of support. However, on beginning the new school it quickly becomes clear to Tom that it will take more than a threatening headmaster to bring the unruly bullies of Rugby under control...
