This chapter presents the author's recollections of his school days. When he was five, he attended La Sagesse, a convent school run by French Sisters, and, in 1926, at the age of seven, his parents sent him to a preparatory boarding school, Bishop's Court. The author later transferred to Ampleforth, a Benedictine school, where he quickly rose to the top of his class. At the age of sixteen he decided to become a doctor and obtained the necessary credits to gain entry to the Medical School at Liverpool University. Heeding the advice of his headmaster, Paul Neville, the author also began reading a book a day, and developed a great admiration for Thomas More, whom he regarded as his patron saint.
