If Dick was only ten or eleven in Winter holiday, as I think I have seen it written somewhere, then he would not be at a public school for another one or two years after the summer of Pigeon Post. Boys used to go to public schools aged about thirteen at least. He could have been at a boarding prep school associated with a public school or just in reasonable proximity to one.
Mind you he seems pretty advanced for ten or eleven or even twelve in Pigeon Post. I certainly wasn't taught any chemistry until I was thirteen.
