Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

For more information, and to see the full list of pre-order items for your subject, see the Future Publication Dates

The Handmaid's Tale: The Comprehensive Guide for A Level

"Written with obvious understanding of the subtleties of this dystopian novel, this resource is invaluable!"
R Grundy, ZigZag KS5 English Specialist

"I like the fact it saved time for teachers. I thought that the questions would really make students think and some of the explorations of the text were interesting...it provides comprehensive notes for each chapter too. This enables teachers on the go to have some of the main preparation taken care of for them...teachers can adapt it for however it is needed."
P Ault, English Literature Teacher and Independent Reviewer
