Cheers to the grandfather of educational yearbooks! November 30, 2010

Posted by Alex, Managing Director in Independent Education, New releases.

At John Catt, we are naturally proud of all our exhalted publications – but there is one we think deserves special respect and reverence.

Which School? 2011 has just returned from the printers and is currently being packed up and distributed to major bookstores and key reference points around the world. Amazingly, this is the 86th edition of this fantastic guidebook to all independent schools in the UK – which we think must make it amongst the longest-running educational yearbooks in the UK, if not the world.

Of course, if you know of any education publications that have been around for longer, then do get in touch and let us know. It will be interesting to learn of any others that might have stood the test of time, as Which School? has.

We have some way to rival the longest-running non-educational publications. A quick scout on Google turned up The Statesman’s Yearbook, now in its 146th year. Meanwhile, the UK Football Annual is in its 123rd year.

Thanks to all those schools who opted to promote their facilities and values in the 2011 edition of Which School?, certainly the biggest and most comprehensive edition that anyone in the John Catt offices can remember.

So, here is a cheers to Which School?, the still-sprightly grandfather of educational guidebooks.
