Bored with evening classes in flower arranging and cake decoration widow Joyce and divorcee Eileen, decide to pep up their sex lives and experience all that the 1970s have to offer mature women. Using the large hall of Joyce's home, The Old School, they open the Ladies College for Erotic Arts. They welcome three fellow students, Edith, Betty and Susan to join them on their journey of self-discovery. With the help of young bodybuilders, Johnny and Mick, and unemployed midlands car worker, Winston, they explore the joy of sex in all manner of ways.
Each lady discovers pleasures that were beyond their prior knowledge and they stretch their inhibitions to the limit as they embark on a series of adventures that take them from their cosy village to the red light district of the city. There are laughs, tears and orgasms aplenty as they try out every technique in the book. School for Scandal is a light-hearted look at sexual experience for those beyond the first flush of youth.
