Horrid Henry Wiki

Boudicca Battle-Axe (aka Miss Battle-Axe or Miss B) is Horrid Henry's teacher at school. She is the secondary antagonist of the books and TV Series and the deuteragonist of Horrid Henry: The Movie. She's very strict (less strict than Mr Nerdon) and she teaches the older students. She always keeps an eye on Henry as he's always horrid. Miss Battle-Axe dislikes the class she teaches and seems to like giving punishments, like detentions. In a few episodes, her mother, Mother Battle-Axe, has appeared, who seems to discipline her daughter greatly. Miss Battle-Axe is Scottish; she speaks with a Scottish accent, and in Horrid Henry Does His Homework, she plays the bagpipes.

Even though she doesn't teach every student in the school, she has given Perfect Peter detention twice like in Perfect Peter's Revenge (which he wasn't happy about). Several episodes also hint at her possibly romantic relationship with Mr Soggington, the school's gym teacher. Aidan Cook voices her.

In a few episodes, she does seem to be proud of Henry. In Horrid Henry Trapped!, she was proud of him and called him a hero for saving his younger brother (Perfect Peter) from falling shelves.


Physical appearance

Miss Battle-Axe appears to have pale skin, brown-grey hair, a pointy nose, rosy cheeks, and green glasses.


She wears a yellow button up shirt, a long, green coat, a maroon skirt, brown tights, and even darker loafers. She also wears green glasses.


She is known as a bad teacher to almost everyone. In Horrid Henry and the Football Fiend, she won two tickets to a football game without her kids. And she was a chemistry teacher in Henry's diary. However, at times she will be fair, such as in Horrid Henry on trial, although usually she is unfair to students she dislikes, mainly Horrid Henry.
