The Drone

The Worst Witch

Mildred Hubble lives a very ordinary life with her mum Julie, until one day Maud Spellbody crashes her broomstick into their balcony and nothing is ever the same again. Maud introduces Mildred to the Cackle’s Academy, a school for young witches set high on a mountain top. Under the watchful eye of their friendly headmistress Miss Cackle and scary deputy Miss Hardbroom, Mildred begins her training, but no matter how hard she tries, her spells have a habit of going badly wrong, causing chaos. Will Mildred always be The Worst Witch? Who knows, so join her in this CBBC’s adaptation of The Worst Witch books, written by Jill Murphy.
