Mr Phillips played by Chiwetalu Agu is the school teacher responsible for awarding a much coveted scholarship to study at a university in the UK. Teddy is the brightest boy in his class but it looks like Mr Phillips is going to fix it so that another student, Victor who is a failing receives the scholarship instead. This is because he has a relationship with Victor’s parents and has been receiving money from them. Mr Phillips provides Victor with a cheat sheet to copy from in the examination room to ensure that the plan does not fail. We get to see what exactly the consequences are when exactly that happens.
