From the Back Cover:

LAVENDER LEIGH AT THE CHALET SCHOOL

‘Lavender Leigh is a conceited, ignorant, empty-headed child, who wants taking down a peg or two.’ Lavender had never been to school before and, despite Bride Bettany’s watchful care, she quickly manages to alienate all the other Juniors. There are several hard lessons for Lavender to learn before she becomes a true Chalet School girl.

GAY LAMBERT AT THE CHALET SCHOOL

The summer term proves to be a difficult one for Gay and her friends when a dreadful accident causes a new headmistress to be appointed. Authoritarian Miss Bubb has very different views on how a school should be run and soon there is wide discontent. Gay decides it is time to take matters into her own hands.
