Education in England aims to provide students, teachers, lecturers and researchers - and anyone else who is interested - with information and original source material relating to the development of England's school system.
It contains the full texts of more than 260 important documents, including Reports, Official Papers and Acts of Parliament.
The site is divided into three main sections which can be accessed using the buttons at the top or bottom of every page. (Clicking on the Education in England logo always brings you back to this page).
Education in England: a brief history tells the story of England's schools from 597 to 2010. In addition to the main text (117,000 words in twelve chapters), there's also a timeline of major events, education acts and publications (the most visited page on the whole website), a glossary and a bibliography.
Almost all the important reports on education in England and Wales since 1900 are here: Hadow, Plowden, Bullock, Warnock, Cockcroft, Swann and Elton etc. There are also more than a hundred Acts of Parliament passed since 1825, and various other government and HMI publications.
Here are 29 articles (on primary education, pupil grouping policies, faith schools, academies, creationism, school meals etc), a dissertation (on religious education in Oxfordshire), 20 book reviews, a couple of teaching aids and some school policies.
