Roald Dahl moves to Repton, where he spends the rest of his schooldays



In 1929, Roald leaves St Peter's and moves to board at Repton, a famous British Public School near Derby. He documents some of the more memorable events that happened during his time at Repton in Boy, including tales of eccentric school masters, Boazers, toilet-seat warming and chocolate tasting - pupils at Repton were invited to trial chocolate bars for a famous company, a memory that stayed with Roald throughout his life and partially inspired Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Roald left school in 1934 at the age of 18.
