This nostalgic 13-part series set in post-war Britain follows a young girl named Darrell Rivers, who leaves her home for the first time to join Malory Towers, an all-girls’ boarding school. But there’s a dash of mystery to the life she’s leaving behind…


Once at her new school, the escapades come thick and fast. From midnight feasts and games of lacrosse to pranks, ghosts and unforgettable friendships, there are thrills and spills at every turn!
