Ruby Fry is a new Teacher at Waterloo Road as of Series 5. She teaches Food Technology and is played by Elizabeth Berrington.
Ruby Fry is the new 'snobby' Food Technology Teacher at Waterloo Road. Ruby had hoped to continue teaching at John Fosters under the rule of Max Tyler, whom she respects dearly, for his attitude to discipline.
Ruby regards Waterloo Road as a severe demotion and is disliked by Waterloo Road pupils and Teachers alike. Her attitude to the school causes an argument in the staff-room when she says that the school is a breeding ground for the next generation of thugs. Prompting shock from her colleagues. Grantly Budgen whole-heartedly agrees with her, though. Ruby is very hygene-centric and enjoys teaching people 'how it's done.'
