The New School is the fourth episode of the eighth season.


The first college ever to be built on Sodor is constructed.




  • This episode marks the first and so far only appearance of Tidmouth University. However it is mentioned in both the thirteenth season and the first season of the spin-off series, Jacob and Friends:All Grown Up.
  • There are several differences between the original draft and the final transcript:
    • The university was originally to be built at Harwick instead of Tidmouth
    • Ryan and Daisy appeared in the original draft, but, due to the university being moved from Harwick to Tidmouth, they were absent from the final transcript.
    • Thomas and Byron were absent from the original draft, but were added in the final transcript
