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.

H Griffiths, English Teacher & Independent Reviewer

“The mix of analytical detail with the opportunities for students to extend this skill in the range of activities provided is admirable. It not only allows students to consider the text independently on many levels: structure, form, characterisation, etc. but also allows students to consider the text in a 'loose' canonical sense, e.g. how its narrative structure and technique connects with Woolf and Scott Fitzgerald."
