Interesting Latin-related sidelight upon which schools the female Ss and As went to (boys' schools being on the whole more likely to teach Latin). So Susan and Titty went to a school which taught Latin (the younger Titty not starting yet); their parents - particularly perhaps their Australian mother - wanted their girls to have an education beyond preparation to be a wife and mother. Perhaps 'RNS' - the Royal Naval School, where my mother went in the 1930s and which had forward-looking ideas.
But unsurprisingly the rumbustious Amazons went to a perhaps more sport-oriented, outdoor-style school. (Nancy nevertheless hated it, but then she'd have hated any form of restraint) I have a feeling that it would have been in the North or Midlands - not Scotland or the south.
