Joseph’s family was not academic, and his father did not understand how the education system functioned at that time. Consequently, Joseph remained at the village school until he was fourteen. It is apparent that the family was never very flush with money, and spending some on educating a child beyond the minimum legal age in a private establishment required a considerable sacrifice. Nevertheless, at the age of fourteen he was admitted to the Nelson School in nearby Wigton, for which the normal age of entry was eleven.

At that time one could buy chemicals from the local chemist (pharmacist) and the young Chatt was able to purchase things such as metallic sodium and aqua regia. He once claimed that he was one of the very few people to have observed the reaction of metallic sodium with aqua regia, and one would not wish to query this claim! It seems to have been rather spectacular. Somewhat later the destruction of some more of his sodium metal by throwing it into the water at Silloth Dock on the Cumbrian coast led to reports that the port had suffered an IRA attack, and apparently these have never been corrected.
