Schools have been discussed a fair number of times. Do we have some new members in this discussion? If so, welcome.

In chapter 1 of PM (pp. 9-10 in the Cape hardback) it is stated that, before leaving on her cruise, Mrs Blackett visited Nancy and Peggy at their school. So they were at a boarding school and both at the same one.

From the first paragraph of chapter 2 of the same book we know that Dorothea was seen off by her mother at Euston station, London, whereas Dick joined the train at Crewe. There has been speculation that he was at Shrewsbury public school.
