"Christ's Hospital: Tradition with Vision" by David Taplin & Lizzie Ballagher is published

About the Book:

Christ's Hospital: Tradition with Vision celebrates nearly five centuries of a unique independent school founded in 1552 to educate and support disadvantaged children. Through an interwoven collection of poetry and essays, contributors focus on the positive impact, ethos, tradition and vision that Christ's Hospital represents. Reviewing history and anticipating the school's quincentenary in 2052, this book poses key questions about the challenges of coming decades in secondary education and society generally, considering as it does so some of the contributions Christ's Hospital might make to a changing world.

All proceeds of the book support the Benevolent Society of Blues.

Reviews of this book:

"This unique look at Christ's Hospital brings memory and imagination together.... I've discovered a heritage and thriving affection that looms large in the minds and hearts of Old Blues around the world today."

(Professor Jeffrey Barbeau Wheaton College, USA; Associate Editor, The Coleridge Bulletin)

"Tucked away in the pages of this book are fascinating nuggets. Let the great debate on CH develop imaginatively in fulfilment of the 1552 charitable mission."

(Andrew Cosedge London, Chair, Benevolent Society of Blues)

"This delightful anthology of poetry and prose celebrates the traditional charitable mission, ethos and ideals of Christ's Hospital since its foundation by King Edward VI in 1552. It deserves to be widely read."

(Stanley Johnson Somerset, Environmentalist, European Politician)

Excerpt from the Book:

"In recent years, Christ's Hospital has extended its welcome, not only to those from disadvantaged backgrounds, but also to all who wish to experience an education of breadth, rich variety, and excellence. And individuals from across the globe have been drawn to the school as a result. This recent shift is a testament to how Christ's Hospital has been able to flourish for over 450 years, adapting constantly to the surrounding political and socio-economic environment, surviving the Great Fire of London in 1666; its relocations to Horsham in 1902 and from Hertford in 1985; and, more significantly, World Wars I and II to which the school lost some 600 Old Blues. In terms of withstanding time, Christ's Hospital has proved to be especially successful and resilient. The ability of the school to successfully adapt to its surroundings is possible, in part, through its foresight and continuous engagement with the wider community. The factors have allowed the school accurately to determine social conditions and to take appropriate action to preserve the continuation of the school. The remit has extended to looking into the future to determine what role the school can play on a national and international platform."
