"Dear Miss Ferrars,
I wish to offer you the post of form mistress to the intermediate fifth form in this school ..."
When Kathie Ferrars reads this, it's the happiest moment of her life. It means she will be able to teach in the wonderful Chalet School in the Swiss mountains ...
She finds the School inhabited by every kind of girl, from sensible trustworthy Mary-Lou to selfish, vain Iseult. At first Kathie makes mistakes, but by the end of her first term she is learning to cope, becoming the sort of mistress the Chalet School wants.
