£19.99

Product description

When You Were There: Reflections on Edgehill College 1884-1984
A Mary Shaw
G P Printers, South Molton, N Devon, 1983.
Signed by the author on the half-title.
Soft-bound; 145 x 210 mm; titles in white on the spine; 173 pages. No dust jacket. Monochrome photographs.
The book is in good condition. The binding is sound and tight. The spine and adjacent areas of the covers are faded. The back cover is marked, particularly where a small label appears to have been removed. The contents are clean and unmarked.
Edgehill College was a co-educational independent school located in Bideford, Devon. Founded in 1884 by the Bible Christian movement, Edgehill was one of a number of independent schools owned by the Methodist Church of Great Britain and was sister-school to nearby Shebbear College. It was traditionally the principal girls' independent school in the area, becoming co-educational in 1992. The Preparatory School was always co-educational, with boys boarding at Shawleigh beginning in 1968.
The author says that her book does not purport to be a definitive history of the College. She says her task has been merely to present a picture of Edgehill as it appeared first to those who founded it, and, finally, as it appeared to those who, in 1984, would carry on its traditions.
The book will appeal to anyone with a connection to the College, and those with an interest in education as it was, particularly as a girls’ school, and how education changed in such independent schools over the period.
