Stuart Hordley is a business man and constuctor who heard about Rachel's past from his secretary Tess Doyle. His company, Hordley Construction, was going under so he blackmailed Rachel into getting his company the contract to build the new training centre (episode 13).

Stuart continued to use Rachel's past to blackmail her into going for a meal with him (Episode 13) and in Episode 15 he gives Rachel the evidence that Tess has got and claims that he wants to start over with a clean slate.

In Episode 18 he is confronted by Eddie, who informs him that he knows about Stuart blackmailing Rachel. Later on Stuart shows up at Waterloo Road after Rachel asks him to go to the school. Stuart tells Rachel that he will keep on blackmailing her for as long as possible. He and Rachel are then interrupted by Eddie who tells Stuart that he had clearly stated that Stuart stayed away from Rachel. Stuart is then shown the evidence of the illegal child labour at Hordley Constructions and Rachel says that she has got 'their interesting little blackmail chat on record'. Stuart then speaks to Eddie asking whether he trusts Rachel to run the school (Eddie says that he does) and then he talks about Rachel's past as a prostitute. Then Stuart says to Eddie, 'I bet she gives it to you for free' to which Eddie responds by punching Stuart, much to the secret delight of Rachel. Stuart then runs to his car and drives off.

In Episode 19 Stuart is seen making photocopies of the same article seen at the end of Episode 10, putting one in an enverlope and addressing it to Rachel.

In Episode 20 (the final episode of the series) he accidentally starts a fire at the school, by throwing his lit cigarette down in the area where a gas canister is open, he is then pushed down a flight of stairs in an argument with Rachel, but manages to get up and walk off while the building is being evacuated. Rachel later goes back into the school to check if anyone is still trapped, to find Stuart lying on a corridor floor. The ceiling then collapses (with Hordley taking the brunt of the collapsed ceiling) and they are both trapped under the rubble, although the viewers are left on a cliffhanger as to whether they have lived or died.

The fire caused by Hordley also resulted in learning support assistant Davina Shackleton suffering smoke inhalation, and she was last seen being driven away to hospital in an ambulance, with viewers being left with another "alive or dead" cliffhanger.

Hordley was presumably killed in the fire, however this has not been confirmed.

When her Mother, Chlo, fell pregnant with Izzy at the age of 17, she wasn't sure if she wanted it but Donte on the other hand, was delighted at the prospect of becoming a dad. Chlo felt that her mother (deceased) would be disappointed in her, therefore Chlo makes the heartbreaking decision to give the baby up for adoption when she was born. In the episode that Izzy was born, Donte was upset that Chlo wanted to give up their first baby — so he came to the decision that he would up bring the child single handed — sadly that meant divorcing Chlo so he could legally adopt the child. Tom Clarkson (Chlo's mothers fiance before she was stabbed to death) - who Chlo is currently living with, agreed with Donte, and offered to help him bring up the baby. This left Chlo upset, because she didn't know who else to turn to. When Izzy was born (that episode) in the female school toilets, Chlo realizes that she does love this child, and her mother would be proud of her bringing up a baby with her husband and family, so in the hospital Chlo says "We could call her Izzie (after Chlo's dead mother and Izzy's late grandmother Izzie Redpath)" which makes Donte happy to stay married.{|cellspacing="0" style="" class="navbox" |style="padding: 2px;"|
