I have been trying to recall the name of a British children's show from the 1980's which was about a very head strong bad little girl (possibly an orphan) in a boarding school.

One particular episode I remember had her being taught woodwork and she made herself a wooden samurai sword to weak havoc with.

For some reason the name Angela Atkins strikes a bell but that may just be my mind playing tricks on me.

This would have been made around the same time a Metal Mickey I think I used to watch them after each other on Australian TV
