"When I was ready for secondary school my parents chose a boarding school for me--Overstone, near Northampton. It was a school of the Parents' National Educational Educational Union (PNEU). All exams were set at Ambleside. It was a school for those who found school work hard to learn, for all was done by repetition of lessons to put them into a thick head." ~~ Blessings and Testings: A Twentieth Century Christian Life, by Josephine E.
