Anne Digby wrote fourteen school story novels set in the fictional school Trebizon, published between 1978 and 1994. Like Enid Blyton's much earlier creation, Malory Towers, Trebizon is located in Cornwall.

The novels follow the protagonist Rebecca Mason from when she joins the school in the second form through to the end of her fifth year. A major theme throughout the series is Rebecca's burgeoning talent for tennis. Other major characters include Rebecca's two best friends, Tish Anderson and Susan Murdoch, and boyfriend Robbie Anderson.

Despite their more recent publication dates, the later books in the series are substantially harder to obtain than the earlier ones. This may be because fewer copies were printed during the 1990s recession in the UK book trade. The series is currently out of print but retains a dedicated fan base and titles frequently change hands in a thriving second hand market.

Some of the rarer books in the series are currently being reprinted by Fidra Books. All fourteen books are currently available on Amazon Kindle.
