Adapted from Alan Bennet's successful stage play, The History Boys takes place in the early 1980s at Cutler's Grammar School in Sheffield. The school's ambitious headmaster is keen to get as many of his sixth formers as possible into Cambridge or Oxford Universities. To that end, he hires Irwin, a specialist coach for a small group of students, who soon comes into conflict with their General Studies teacher Hector. For Irwin, learning is its own reward and he develops a deep bond with the charming and gifted boys in his class. However, as the boys get close to leaving school behind, their relationship with their teachers (and one another) becomes darker and more complicated.
An ageing headmaster reflects on his almost 60-year career at a boys' boarding school in this unashamedly sentimental British classic.
