I remember a scene set in the school's gym room, with ghosts hanging from the wall bars. I recall the boy having a particular distaste for wall bar exercises -- perhaps because he was bullied there (tied to the wall bars? cruel gym teacher assigning him extra exercises?).
It was the book where I first came across the word "ectoplasm", because that was what the ghosts were made of.
The end might have involved a castle or a mansion on a hill that ended up serving as the ghosts' new home.
I've tried google books' advanced search for the terms wall bars and ectoplasm, but nothing from the appropriate time range turns up.
Reviews mention ghosts changing their foul smell to suit their mood, headless ghosts and a screaming skull -- all of those spark memories of the same book.
Thanks a bunch, sparemethecensor!
