Jennifer Flegg has written the book The French School, Bray, Remembered: a history of the French School at Bray 1864-1966

For over 100 years, the French School in Bray, Co. Wicklow educated Protestant girls from all over Ireland. Now, Jennifer Flegg’s original research has uncovered the story of Héloîse de Mailly, the French aristocrat who founded the school in 1864. The history of this unique institution is traced from its foundation to its closure in 1966, drawing on the lively memoirs and reminiscences of former pupils and staff.
