Too Marvellous for Words

Midnight feasts in dorms, jolly japes with chums, pranks on mad teachers and no boys whatsoever. A wonderfully evocative and entertaining memoir of life in an all-girls boarding school in Suffolk in the early 1960s. Award-winning writer Julie Welch remembers her time spent at Felixstowe College, a long-lost world of arcane rules and happenings, when the headmistress and the Head of Science raced each other on public roads in their sports cars, and when having meringues for birthday tea instead of plain cake was branded ‘disgraceful’. As the social morals of post-war Britain collided with those of the decadent 1960s, Julie and her fellow pupils discovered Radio Caroline, fashion and the facts of life at the same time as playing lacrosse derbies, attending classical music concerts and sea-bathing. Fun and lasting friendships. Full of character and charm, both a memoir and a fascinating social history of a way of English life lived by 'young ladies' some 50 years ago.
