Too Marvellous for Words!

Julie Welch / Karen Cass
The wonderfully evocative 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 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 concerts and sea-bathing. The years spent at Felixstowe College made a lasting impression on the girls who boarded there.
