Teachers’ work appears in print

In recent months, some Bedales teachers have had their work published. After 17 years of study, writing and editing, Christopher Grocock’s edition of Abbots of Wearmouth and Jarrow (Bede’s historical works about the origins of the monastery at Wearmouth-Jarrow) has appeared in print. Chris, who teaches Classics at Bedales, was delighted to present a copy to the Library and to thank the many students of Latin over the past ten years who have experienced his ‘enthusiasm for Bede’ from time to time! Clare Jarmy, Head of Religious Studies and Philosophy, has written a book for A Level PRE students: Arguments for God, and she is also in the process of writing two more: Miracles and Attributes of God. Over the summer, an article by Clare entitled Classroom practice – Revisit revising to make the lesson last was published in TES Pro, with another to follow. In addition, Head of Computing, Susan Robson, has written two books: GCSE Computing for OCR and GCSE Computer Science for AQA, both endorsed by the exam boards. Susan is currently writing one for the WJEC Computer Science specification as well.
