Starting life in 1791 as a single-room school for poor local children, The St Marylebone School has become the top non-selective school in London and one of the top non-selective girls' schools in the country. The journey has been challenging and often turbulent, as the school has sought to make the most of its small site at the top of Marylebone High Street. Over the past twenty years, under the leadership of Elizabeth Phillips, the school has developed notable strengths in the performing and visual arts, mathematics and supporting students with special educational needs. Increasingly it helps other schools to flourish. Throughout the many changes to its fabric and curriculum, St Marylebone has remained faithful to the values of its founders and retained the strong support of the church against which it nestles. Its aim is to ensure that every child, regardless of their background, is helped to make the very best of their talents and abilities.

St Marylebone parish grew from humble beginnings on the city's margins to become, in the 18th and 19th centuries, one of the wealthiest in London, home to the elite and fashionable. The small parish church on Marylebone High Street, built in brick in 1742 on the site of the medieval church, was inadequate for such a congregation and was superceded in 1817 by today's far grander edifice on Marylebone Road. Archaeological investigations in 1992 showed that the graveyard - levelled in the 1930s for a playground for St Marylebone Church of England School for Girls - lay substantially undisturbed beneath the playground. In 2004 plans to build an underground sports hall allowed excavation of a sample of the burial ground and part of the church itself. Most of the 350+ burials recorded were from the graveyard; some were in family vaults and others inside the church crypt. The archaeological results and detailed osteological analysis of 301 individuals are combined with documentary research into the parish and its population, including the woman who preferred parrots to men, the artist who died of lockjaw and the Reverend headmaster and his 'most wicked and abandoned wife'. This volume is one of the largest and most comprehensive studies of a post-medieval London cemetery.

Hackney, now a borough in London's East End, began as several small settlements in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. Due to its close proximity to London, the parish became a fashionable retreat for the wealthy in the area, including aldermen, nobles, courtiers, and eventually, Bank of England Directors. By the eighteenth century, Hackney was said to be the most opulent village in England. Offering a comprehensive examination of Hackney's history, the work then describes the canals, railways, factories, and working-class tenements that grew in Hackney during the nineteenth century, and continues the industrial progression into the twentieth century. Drastic demographic changes and the spread of public housing developments have left Hackney ridden with poverty in the 1990s, but the author sees hope for the borough in the beginnings of renewed gentrification. Thoroughly and originally researched, this work is indespensible to local historians.

First published in 1919, this book addresses the history of education in England from the 4th century AD to the early years of the 20th century. Adamson examines the impact of significant events, such as the Black Death, on contemporary systems of education, and stresses the role of the Church and the Roman Empire in shaping English education through the centuries. The book was influential enough that it remained a classic long after publication and even after Adamson's death in 1945. This book will be of value to those studying the history and development of the education of both men and women in England.

This directory is an attempt to collect together information about such bands and make it available to all. Over 19,600 bands are recorded here, with some 10,600 additional cross references for alternative or previous names. This volume supersedes the earlier “British Brass Bands – a Historical Directory” (2016) and includes some 1,400 bands from the island of Ireland. A separate work is in preparation covering brass bands beyond the British Isles. A separate appendix lists the brass bands in each county
