At the start, Horrid Henry [Theo Stevenson] tries to steal cookies from Moody Margaret [Scarlett Stitt]'s Secret Club, and succeeds, but before he could eat them, his mother [Siobhan Hayes] interrupts, telling him to do his homework. Henry screams in despair. After he is introduced to the audience, he refuses to do his homework and is lost in his dreams.
In the morning, Henry's mother wakes him up and tells him to go to school. When his Mum reminds him to take his homework, he remembers that his homework is in a really bad state and leaves it behind. When he goes to school, Henry tells his friend Brian that he has not got his homework, asking him to write a forged excuse letter. When Henry and his other friends get to their seats, Miss Battle-Axe [Anjelica Huston] is taking the register. When she asks everyone about their homework, Henry tells her that he has not brought his homework, and makes an excuse by showing her the fake letter, to no avail as the teacher knows that it is a forgery. He gets triple detention for failing to do his homework, failing to bring his homework and for presenting the forged note.
Miss Oddbod [Rebecca Front] tells Henry's class that the school inspectors are coming and they don't want any 'unpleasantness'. With Henry in detention, his friends join him to practice for a talent contest, but their rehearsal is stopped after Miss Oddbod and the school inspectors hear them and stop them. As Henry and Perfect Peter [Ross Maron] are going home, Margaret tries to throw a water balloon, but Henry got that and tricks her into throwing a balloon at her. As she tries to throw a balloon at him, Henry escapes and Peter gets hit. When he is singing about being a king, Peter tells on him for not doing his homework. Henry turns into a dinosaur and scares him, but is still making noise. As his Dad [Matthew Horne] marches up to his room, Henry tricks him into thinking that he is doing his homework (Physics).
The next day, Margaret makes a plan by pouring goop at him, but Miss Battle-Axe falls for it, blames Henry, and gets fired. In despair, she sends everyone home early. Henry notices this at home on a news report.
It is revealed that Ashton Primary, the school Henry attends, is to be [deliberately] closed and Vic Van Wrinkle [Richard E Grant], the headmaster of BrickHouse School, stands to make a fortune from the resulting influx of pupils.
the next day, Miss Battle-Axe disguises herself as a male teacher, hoping to get her job back, but Miss Oddbod discovers her, and sends her out. Also, Her class is forced to join Miss Lovely [Parminder Nagra]'s class. But then, Henry and Margaret get into a fight, and launch a pot full of goo [which Henry claims isn't his], which hits Miss Lovely. As punishment, Miss Oddbod bans the Zero Zombies from the talent contest.
Later, at home, Henry discovers from his Rich Aunt Ruby that there will be a try-out day at BrickHouse, which his Great Aunt Greta books Peter for, and pays for him to go. She sends Henry to Our Lady Giddiantus, a girls-only school, which Margaret enters also. whilst trying to escape, Henry discovers a picture of Miss Battle-Axe, which suddenly says 'Oh Henry, you horrid boy!'. Trying to sneak out, they get detected, but Despite this, the two of them escape.
Meanwhile, the try-out day at BrickHouse is underway. Miss Lovely discovers something odd about Vic Van Wrinkle and, whilst Peter sings 'Frere Jacques' in different ways to create a distraction, she goes to find out his plan, only to get caught by Vic Van Wrinkle in the process. She gives Peter his Good-as-Gold book, leaving Peter confused, and suspicious about BrickHouse.
At a Purple Hand Gang meeting, Henry comes up with a plan to save the school: get back into the talent contest, win it, and become 'famous enough' so that they won't want to shut the school down. With the help Moody Margaret and her sidekick Sour Susan, Henry and the Zero Zombies sneak into the Talent Contest, disguised as pupils from Lady Giddiantus, past Soggy Sid [David Schneider], with Henry discovering a wall mural of Miss Battle-Axe saying 'Oh Henry, you horrid boy!' in the process. During their performance in front of Ed Banger and the Killer Boy Rats, Sid discovers the Zero Zombies, and tries to ruin the Performance but Margaret and her friends [and Vicious Vicky, Sour Susan's sister] manage to stop him. Ed Banger is very impressed, and Henry wins.
But, At school, Soggy Sid is removed from the school as well. Henry is found out that he was on the show and Miss Oddbod explains to him that his theory was wrong; stating the school would still close down, regardless of how famous Henry would become. and to top it all off, she tells him that he should have thought about trying to save the school from closing down before he started 'being horrid'. Understanding, Henry sadly leaves the office.
Sitting in his bedroom in despair, Henry is called into his Purple Hand Gang fort where Margaret and Peter explain he has been invited onto '2 Cool 4 School' where he can win a Cash Prize if he wins, so he can give it to Miss Oddbod and she can bribe the inspectors to go away. After completing some challenges, the Presenters show him confiscated toys in the Confiscated Cupboard but Henry insists on the Cash Prize where he has to meet a 'Terrible Teacher' which is revealed to be Miss Battle-Axe. Miss Battle-Axe asks him to spell a word which he had misspelled earlier in the film (Homework), which he succeeds in doing. Miss Battle-Axe congratulates Henry and gives him the Cash Prize, stating he's only the second person to win, and a special badge reveals she'd won the show before, a long long tine ago, possibly before Henry was born. Henry thanks her and hurries with Margaret to Miss Oddbod.
Meanwhile, Van Wrinkle holds Miss Lovely, Peter, and his friends [who went on a rescue mission to BrickHouse] hostage in his office. But Miss Lovely tricks him into explaining his plan while she has her mobile phone out so that Miss Oddbod can hear on her end. It is revealed that Vic Van Wrinkle is planning to close down lots of other schools as well as Ashton Primary, so that the parents of the kids who went to those schools would have to pay him lots of money for their kids to go to BrickHouse. Miss Oddbod hears, and stops writing the contract she was given. Hearing the sirens and the police arrive at the scene, Vic attempts to escape but with Peter tying his shoelaces together, falls out of the window, and is caught by the police and is arrested as well as his partners. Henry and Margaret manage to get to Miss Oddbod which Peter instantly offers her the money but she explains she heard Vic Van Wrinkle's Plan and does not need the money and therefore returns the money to which they will have the party of a lifetime
The next day, Henry's family and friends congratulate him for saving the school and, as promised between Henry and Margaret, have the party of a lifetime. Then, the entire cast all dance to 'Everybody Dance' which to Henry runs to the audience to splat his famous 'Purple Hand Gang' logo.
