It's been mentioned on the blog before, but The History of Education in England is a website which all students with an interest in schooling should visit. The pages are maintained by Derek Gillard, a retired headmaster who aims to provide students, teachers, lecturers and researchers with important historical information.

Probably the most useful area of the site is the Documents section; this contains the full text of many landmark educational reports including the Plowden report, the Warnock report, the Swann report and plenty of others (the number is still growing). Also very helpful is the Articles section, which contains a number of pieces that Derek himself has written, and which help to put the various reports into context by explaining the educational developments that were occurring at the time that they were published.
