The Chalet School is a series of approximately sixty school story novels by Elinor Brent-Dyer, initially published between 1925 and 1970.
The school was initially located in Austria, moved to Guernsey in 1939, following the rise to power of the Nazi Party, then to "Plas Howell", a house on the border of England and Wales, then to St Briavels, close to the English - Welsh border and finally to Switzerland.
Chalet School books were originally published in hardback between 1925 and 1970. The novels were reissued in paperback format between 1967 and 1995. Usually with updated language. Some were more or less uncut, but many others were abridged to various extents, including chapters deleted from some titles. A few were split into two paperback volumes, and several were retitled.
Several authors have written books about the Chalet School. Some of them follow on from the last book of the series, and others attempt to fill in some of the "gaps" in the earlier years of the school. All books are published by Girls Gone By Publishers (formerly Friends of the Chalet School).
Summer Term at the Chalet School was first published by Chambers, in 1965 and it is No.54 in the Chalet School series.
"Summer Term at the Chalet School and what a summer it proved to be!
This was the first term at the Chalet School for Erica Standish - home from Kashmir - and there was one thing happening after another. Beginning with a railway accident on the way from Paris to Berne, she went from one adventure to another, winding up with a landslide, a tumble into the resultant crevasse, and a narrow escape from being buried alive by a further landslide!
In between times, she found friends, helped with ideas for the celebration of the school's Silver Jubilee, and adopted as a baby sister little Marie-Claire, left orphaned by the railway accident.
A full term indeed. But we leave Erica very happy at the school and prepared to do her best to become just what is asked of a true Chalet School girl."
