Gillian of the Chalet School is set between The New Chalet School and The Chalet School in Exile. It was first published in 2001 and then reprinted in 2006.
Gillian Linton is now Head Girl and has problems to face with the new House system. The Middles are up to their tricks as usual and a massive storm ensures that this is not the peaceful term for which she had hoped. Then there is the worry over Mrs Linton’s declining health.
In writing this story, Carol has had to deal with some particularly difficult issues of Chalet School ‘timing’ and in her Afterward she shows just why she has made certain decisions.
Carol Allan has written a brilliant new short story as the ‘extra’ for the book, about the closing of St Scholastika
