When Roald Dahl was only four years old his father passed away. As a result Dahl became quite disruptive in his early school years and his mother had to enroll her boisterous and playful son at St. Peters. A British Boarding School, in which was her late husbands wish. Dahl later transferred to Repton, another private school which he despised due to its strict rules and regulations.
