Notes, topics or text

Meynell informs Dora that he and Lloyd cannot recommend taking the children out of Dartington due to "... age companionship; the undesirability of a change, in itself, unless there are very strong reasons for it; and in a lesser degree, staff and technical equipment."

"There is, I want to make it clear, no kind of criticism of your school, or your qualities as an educator in either of our minds. For children of your lower average-age-group I can think of no school more satisfactory than yours."

Meynell states that the reasons Dartington was agreed on rather than Bedales was because they do not wear uniforms, did not have a holiday for the royal wedding, and do not admit to using corporal punishment.
