When Joey Bettany’s sister Madge sets up a school in the Austrian Tyrol, Joey is among the first pupils. From its small beginnings it grows rapidly, enjoying all sorts of exciting adventures and mishaps.
Joey, effectively an only child because Madge is twelve years her senior, is always ill during the English winter. Madge’s solution to Joey’s health problems is to start a school in the Austrian Tyrol. At first there are only a handful of pupils, but soon the numbers grow, with children coming from all over the world. Joey is always the central character, in this as in many of the other 60-odd books in the series. There are alarms and excursions in which she takes part with interest, wonderful descriptions of the spectacular local scenery, hilarious antics of one sort or another, and plenty of near disasters in the mountains.
The School at the Chalet is the first book in an ever-popular series. It was first published in 1925 and has been in print ever since.

“I’m going to start a school,” announced Madge Bettany. “ It’ll be near Lake Tiernsee in the Austrian Tyrol. And Joey will be my first pupil … “
Madge’s startling plan becomes an exciting reality when the school in the mountains finally opens. Pupils are to come from all over the world, but none is looking forward to the first term more than Madge’s younger sister, Joey. Joey knows that all sorts of new adventures are in store, but even she can’t guess at the wonderful future that lies ahead for the Chalet School.
This is the first story in the ever popular Chalet School series about Joey Bettany and her family and friends.About the Author:
Elinor M. Brent-Dyer grew up in South Shields (Catherine Cookson country!) but moved south after training as a teacher. She wrote The School at the Chalet after her only trip abroad, to the Austrian Tyrol, never guessing it would prove so successful as to warrant writing a further fifty or so books on the subject. And although she wrote many books about other schools, the Chalet School series remains her most enduringly popular. She died in 1969.
