Spring 2011 magazines: sneak preview December 9, 2010

Posted by Alex, Managing Director in Magazines.

Prep School spring 2011 issue

The run-up to the start of a new school term is always a busy time in the John Catt Educational offices. Amongst other projects, we are in the final stages of putting together the spring 2011 issues of our magazines, International School (is), Conference & Common Room and Prep School.

International School magazine will focus on global issues and feature articles including: What it means to be a global citizen, by Kathy Kirby; A partnership of understanding, by Dirayet Ulug and Dr Frederick Thompson; and Global, generous and green, by Jennifer Gokmen.

As always in the spring issue, we will also carry lots of photos from the recent ECIS Annual Conference in Nice. Plenty of pictures of attentive faces, inspiring speakers … and the odd photo of people relaxing with a glass of wine.

Issue number 70 of Prep School magazine, the second under the editorship of Michele Kitto, looks at some of the more traditional subjects taught in independent prep and junior schools in the UK. We are particularly pleased with the front cover (see left)!

It carries editorial from Dr Matthew Jenkinson, head of English and history at New College School, Oxford, sharing a moving family story to help illustrate World War I poetry to his class; Barbara Bell, a teacher at Haberdashers’ Monmouth School for Girls, reflecting on how the Primary Latin Project has developed over the last 12 years; and a nostalgic feature by Greg Tesser, looking back at his days as a pupil at the Hall School in the “austere fifties”.

Meanwhile, Conference & Common Room, as always rich in variety, sees John Newton, Headmaster of Taunton School, contemplating the work/life balance of a Head; and Geoff Lucas, the Secretary of HMC, drafting a personal ‘top ten’ proposals for the educational scene.

All three magazines will be landing in staffrooms around the world in early January. Additional copies can be ordered through the John Catt Bookshop.
