In 2013 at Glendower House, the long-serving headmistress, Mrs Ashton, was fascinated by the new Raspberry Pi, and decided to order many of them for teaching.

"No, you will not be arguing from cause to effect," said the new history teacher firmly, "Instead you will be analysing the utility of this source for the specified enquiry."

Any overheating had rarely been much of an issue in the past, but even in Wales the increasingly warm summers made the school consider installing air conditioning in parts of the building at Glendower House.

"It seems easy enough," said Jo, closing the grimoire. 'Corney and I recite the incantation backwards and on the last syllable Marie plunges the ritual blade into Simone's virgin heart. This causes the Beast to rise and he rules the Tyrol for a thousand generations of evil whilst we Chalet girls serve eternally as his handmaidens of darkness. Except Simone, obviously, sorry Smone."

"That all right, my Jo, I'd do anything for you."
