At Royal Prep, the students are learning the bouncing spell in sorcery class. Sofia learns it without any trouble but everyone else just can't seem to get it down. Flora announces that she, Fauna and Merryweather are going to the united fairy teachers meeting. But Fauna forgot about this and therefore didn't find a substitute teacher for sorcery class. Sofia decides to ask Cedric to be the substitute. At first, Cedric doesn't want to but Sofia manages to convince him by telling him there's an ingredient he needs for his potion in the greenhouse at Royal Prep.
The next day, at Royal Prep, Cedric resumes the bouncing spell lesson. Meanwhile, three students known as Elliot, Amy and Kurt who are from Hexley Hall, Cedric's former sorcery school, show up and start playing magical pranks on everyone. James and Amber tell Sofia that every year the students from Hexley Hall play magical pranks at Royal Prep that leave the school in disarray for months and the tricks are far from harmless. At first, Cedric doesn't want to stop them but Sofia reminds him that he's in charge and failing to handle three kids will make him look foolish. Cedric tries to stop them but they overpower him and stick him in a chair with a sticking spell. Sofia and her friends come out to help him and Cedric teaches them the disappearing spell to fix the damage. They all try it but everyone fails. Vivian isn't even trying because she has no confidence. Cedric tells the children the key to casting successful magic is to keep trying and never give up. One by one, everyone finally gets the spell down.
Meanwhile, the Hexley Hall trio cast the spell for their ultimate prank: Filling Royal Prep with bubbles to make the school float away. Sofia and her friends try to stop them but the trio overpower them. Vivian saves her friends and they all stop the trio with the bouncing spell. Then, they save the school with the disappearing spell and force the evil trio to get out of Royal Prep and never prank them again. When the fairies get back, Cedric tells them what happened and the fairies assure them that the Headmaster of Hexley Hall will hear about it and punish the trio. They then free Cedric who leads them back to class to continue teaching them magic.

- Sir Gillium intervenes the Pranksters, but they put him in the clock tower. In the scene where the song is set in, Sir Gillium is instead in a room where the floor becomes a trampoline. After Miss Fauna and Miss Flora arrived, Sir Gillium calls help in the clock tower. (Although, this goof is overlooked due to Sir Gillium having some likeness to Professor Popov, and will take a sharp eye to spot the differences... it's a mistake non-the-less.)
