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.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (350)
'I would welcome this as a resource for English. I would also recommend the quality of this resource and how useful this could be to our English Dept. Extremely informative and also interesting. I found the character summaries excellent along with the clip art / drawings. I notice an awful lot of work has gone into this resource... I would also find this useful to pass on to our Head of Drama.' V Dewhurst, Librarian, English Teacher and Independent Reviewer
