September 2016 saw the 120th anniversary of Wycombe Abbey. Founded in 1896 by Miss (later Dame) Frances Dove, the School was a trailblazer in promoting education for girls in the second half of the 19th Century.

As part of their programme of anniversary celebrations, the School partnered with us to publish Wycombe Abbey Revisited: An Illustrated History. Margaret Beckett’s accounts of how life at Wycombe Abbey has changed over the years are enriched by the reminiscences of many Seniors and ex-members of staff, while newly commissioned photography helps bring to life many of the connections between the past and the present in a series of visual essays on themes that encapsulate the spirit of the School.

Copies can now be ordered from the School Shop at or by telephoning 01494 897 042.
