In "Returns", when Polly Heriot is thinking of ringing the bell, she characterises it as "Just like in "Pat, the Pride of the School". I had assumed (since a book by that name does not appear to exist) that EBD might have been thinking of "Paddy the Pride of the School" by Dorothy Dennison (although it might just be a "generic" school story name).

I've not read this book (it wasn't until Gil Bilski had it in her catalogue that I'd even come across a copy) and wondered if anyone had, and could confirm (or otherwise) the source of Polly's inspiration.

No fire alarms, real or otherwise, in Paddy the Pride of the School. It's about a popular fun loving girl who becomes a more serious head girl.
