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).

Katherine Bruce, author of the highly acclaimed Peace Comes to the Chalet School and The Müller Twins at the Chalet School (2012).

Peace Comes to the Chalet School by Katherine Bruce — set in the gap between The Chalet School and Rosalie and Three Go to the Chalet School; the action takes place during the summer term of 1945.

"For the past seven years, since their exile from their Tirol home, the girls of the Chalet School have striven with might and main to support the war effort, never losing faith that some day peace will come, and reunite them with their lost friends in the occupied countries.

Now, with the end of the war fast approaching, the Chalet School prepares to take a full part in the victory festivities, inviting Old Girls and new friends to join them in celebrating the defeat of Nazism.

In the midst of all the excitement, school must go on - there are lessons to be learned, Guide badges to be earned, form gardens to tend, and, Middles being Middles, a goodly number of pranks and escapades!

Coincidentally the Sale falls in the summer term this year, and the School determines to raise a record amount for the Sanatorium. Can they outdo their previous efforts, and truly make this a term to remember?"

300 pages.
