This new history of Francis Holland School, Regent's Park will chart the School's development from the small establishment founded in 1878 to its current role as one of the leading academic girls' schools in the country. The book will record the fascinating story behind the School's foundation, its relocation from Upper Baker Street to Ivor Place, significant events in its history, and the personalities, in particular the Headmistresses, who helped create the ethos and community we all recognise today.
The book will draw on the two valuable histories of Francis Holland School, Regent's Park already written by Enid Moberly Bell and Susan Hicklin. It will include material from the School's archives and narrate a further 37 currently unchronicled years of the School's history.
As well as being a celebration of the School's history, the book will capture the true essence of what being a 'Polished Corner' means in the 21st century.
Through informative and entertaining text, beautiful imagery, newly commissioned photography and reminiscences from alumnae, former and current staff, parents and pupils, the diverse and vibrant community which makes the school the centre of excellence it is today will be brought to life.
