A Very Private School by Charles Spencer 

A Very Private School by Charles Spencer is a memoir that delves into the traumatic experiences he faced at a boarding school from the age of eight. The book sheds light on the culture of cruelty prevalent in some British boarding schools and its long-lasting effects on the children, such as PTSD and the need for therapy and healing. Spencer’s account contributes to the ongoing debate about the impact of such institutions on their alumni.
