* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: or rather, activity. At one point, Miss Bulstrode and Poirot think it might be a good idea to get in contact with Mrs Upjohn, and get some more details on exactly who she was talking about on first day of term, so they naturally enough ask Julia.

* DawsonCasting: In-universe. It's said of some of the older girls that they could pass for adults in their 20s. [[spoiler:In the case of "Princess Shaista", it turns out that this is because she ''is'' an adult of 25, having been switched with the real Princess.]]
* DeadPersonImpersonation: [[spoiler:Miss Blanche, who is actually impersonating her sister Angèle who died, and who earned her teaching references.]] It's not as relevant to the plot as you might expect.

* AmateurSleuth / KidDetective : Julia Upjohn has definite shades of this. Not only does she [[spoiler: deduce the existence of and then find the cache of hidden jewels]], she actually figures out a large part of what's going on, when all the grown-ups around her (including Miss Bulstrode and Adam Goodman), are pretty much clueless. She's then [[GenreSavvy intelligent enough to realize that she knows enough to be in danger]], and promptly goes to see Poirot.
