In 1927, Dora and I came to a decision, for which we were equally responsible, to found a school of our own in order that our children might be educated as we thought best. We believed, perhaps mistakenly, that children need the companionship of a group of other children, and that, therefore, we ought no longer to be content to bring up our children without others.... For the purposes of the school we rented my brother's house, Telegraph House, on the South Downs, between Chichester and Petersfield.
