      A club for fans of Elinor M. Brent-Dyer's Chalet School

Welcome to the New Chalet Club

The New Chalet Club (NCC) celebrates the works of Elinor M. Brent-Dyer (often referred to as EBD), in particular the Chalet School (CS) series, and extends a cordial invitation to you to join the club:


  • Members receive journals with articles about Chalet School (CS) characters, plots and locations. It is written and produced by members for members


  • Some members meet up locally to discuss their favourite books and characters, enjoying quizzes, outings and, of course, Chalet School (CS) food. A list of the location of these groups can be found in the back of the journals


  • National events take place like the Annual General Meeting (AGM) when members of the society get together from all over. Old friends are greeted, and new friends made welcome in true Chalet School (CS) style. On occasion, the club has arranged a trip overseas to somewhere featured in the books


Club history


  • The NCC began in 1995 and has an elected committee and a constitution. A ballot was held to choose the club's name. The name is a logical extension of The Chalet Club, which Elinor M. Brent-Dyer (EBD) herself ran between 1959 and her death in 1969
