New Book

The early talks we had about how we might celebrate the Summerhill Centenary led us to consider the literature which is currently available about the school. With the intention of promoting and explaining the Summerhill message, in some detail, we have created a stunning volume which we believe captures the very essence of the School community. We believe that it will become essential reading for anyone interested in how our school is organised on a day to day basis and the way in which it continues to offer ‘a childhood of space and freedom’, in our over-busy 21st century. The 68-page book traces the beginnings of Neill’s thinking through the School’s early years with Neill and then Ena at the helm through to the present day. The book explains in text, written by Zoë, and beautiful photographs from a range of photographers, how relevant and contemporary Summerhill continues to be today

The books will be officially launched on Neill’s 135th Birthday, on 17th October 2018. Information on how and where you can purchase this book, including the price, will be placed on the Summerhill Centenary page on the School’s website very soon.
