We follow Mildred Hubble in her first year at Weirdsister College, a university for students of magic. Similar to her adventures at Cackle's, Mildred usually messes up, but saves the day at the end. The series has a darker side than The Worst Witch, with evil creatures and a possible doomsday. Weirdsister College was directed by Alex Kirby and Stefan Pleszczynski, Who were directors on The Worst Witch.

- The 7th episode in the series (Dr. Foster, I presume) is a reference to the quote "Dr. Livingstone, I presume." by Henry Morton Stanley.
- The twelfth episode in the series (The Whisperer) is the only episode in the series that was marked To Be Continued...
- Felicity Jones returns to playing Ethel Hallow, as for seasons 2 and 3 of The Worst Witch she shaped her appearance to hide the fact she is sister of winy Sybil Hallow. When she came to Weirdsister, she felt as though it was safe to change back, and resumed the appearance of Ethel Hallow of The Worst Witch season 1.
- Weirdsister College had a working title of The Worst Witch: The College Years.
