Books by Other Authors

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.

Fill in Novels

* Juliet of the Chalet School - Caroline German (GGBP 2006) - set between Jo Of & Princess
* Visitors to the Chalet School - Helen McClelland (BP 1995 & 2004; Collins 2000) - set between Princess & Head Girl
* Two Chalet School Girls in India - Priyadarshini Narendra (BP 2006) - set between New & Exile
