This week sees John Catt attending the annual conference of the Independent Schools Association in Bournemouth. It is an especially important conference for us to attend as we have recently published Pro Liberis, The Independent Schools Association 1878-2010.

The book, written by Bryan Maybee, the current president of the ISA, is the result of many hours spent examining the archives of the ISA, looking through the extensive collection of the Association’s committee minutes.

John Catt Educational are proud that the ISA chose us as their publishing partner for Pro Liberis and executive editor Wendy Bosberry-Scott thoroughly enjoyed working on such an interesting history. Here’s what Wendy had to say:

“What started as a private delve into the extensive archives of the Independent Schools Association (ISA) has turned out to be an exciting and informative book, the outcome of many hours work by ISA’s President, Bryan Maybee, with invaluable help from Ruth Howe at the ISA office.

“The result is a wonderful publication, offering a glimpse into the beginnings, growth and workings of one of the UK’s important independent schools associations. Formed over 130 years ago, ISA’s involvement has been crucial to the survival of independent education in the UK and British independent schools, and this book reflects it.”

Pro Liberis was published 4 May.
