Best fictional schools in kid’s literature

September is looming and that means back to school. Boo. But just imagine for a second that you’ll start the new term by learning how to ride a broom. Or maybe you’ll befriend a dolphin. Or you might help solve a murder mystery. We’ve picked out our favourite fictional schools we’d love to go to.
