Drawing on fiction, memoirs, autobiography, poetry and letters, this anthology presents an engrossing selection of attitudes to schools and schooling, from the 16th century to the present day. Placing schooldays classics by Angela Brazil, Frank Richards and Richmal Crompton alongside memoirs by Winston Churchill, George Orwell, Iona Opie and many others, this book will strike a chord with every pupil, past or present, in revealing the glories and defects of a British education.
