Six for Sunday – Fictional Schools

It’s Sunday and if it’s Sunday, then it must be time for #SixforSunday. This meme is the brainchild of Steph and details can be found on her blog here Every week there is a new theme and this is also a new month. As September sees the start of a new school year, this month’s themes are all about school. This week it is the Fictional schools that you would like to go to. Some of my choices this week are definitely historical.

As a child who grew up in the sixties I was brought up reading Enid Blyton and I loved both of her school series.

Then I discovered The Chalet School books by Elinor Brent Dyer. This was a whole new world of school books set in gorgeous locations. And the best thing was there were so many of them, over 50. Armada used to rerelease them periodically and it was always exciting to go into W H Smiths and discover one that I didn’t have.

The two fantasy schools that I would love to have attended are Harper Hall on Pern. Imagine having all the music tuition you could possibly want as well as dragons! If I couldn’t go to Pern, then I would go to Valdemar and hopefully have a strong enough gift to be able to go to Bardic College in the Collegeium,

My sixth book is cheating slightly as it is definitely somewhere that I would not want to go. I don’t think that I would last very long at all in Naomi Novik’s Scholomance.

So that’s my 6 books for this week’s Six for Sunday. What schools do you wish you could go to?
