in the top flat of a block down the road from the school

It all went off quite well.

He doesn't really know which is which.

particularly uncomfortable because all the furniture was piled up

He went through the key ring.

I went up to what I thought was the top flat.

books on biology, chemistry and botany

It looks as if he's either spring-cleaning or preparing to go away on holiday.

Mr Brooks had taken it to the school for the day

Not only were there weird books ...

The people ... are very fussy about their furniture.
