John Catt Educational has been publishing for the independent schools market in the UK since 1959. In the last 20 years we have also become a leading publisher in the international education sector, with a reputation based on quality. We now also enjoy an increasing profile in the UK maintained sector, aided by partnerships with leading organisations such as the National Education Trust.
The latest editions of our seven annual guides to independent and international schools – available in the School Guides section of our online bookshop – are unrivalled in their breadth and accuracy while our professional development titles offer a rich source of information, advice and support for Heads, teachers and administrators in all types of schools around the world.
At John Catt we are proud of the position we hold in education and the trust schools place in us – trust that has been won through hard work, attention to detail, and the ability to be flexible and successfully adapt to the changing technological world in which we live.

Lexonik is an innovative literacy programme making huge impact in schools in the UK, US and Middle East. To date we have worked with over 60,000 students and 700 schools. Lexonik is unique: we develop phonological awareness, metacognition and automaticity and provide an enriching literacy programme that raises attainment at all levels. We look at the etymology of words and make Latin fun!
We recognise that verbal and written vocabulary deficit is by no means an indication of aptitude or ability and have proved that through the use of Lexonik, learners are more likely to acquire English language and confidence with it more rapidly, access the curriculum more effectively and ultimately be more likely to reach their potential academically.
Come and find out more about our unique methodology, our specialist training and resources that can enable your staff to overcome learning barriers, enhance attainment and accelerate student progress at all levels, from age 9 and above. You can even see Lexonik in action!
An incredibly wide ranging, thought provoking and - most importantly - useful conference. As an international teacher it was particularly useful to meet and chat with other overseas teachers face-to-face. In terms of the conference sessions, everything I attended delivered something that either I could implement in my classroom or that got me to reflect more critically on what I already do. The huge range of available sessions meant I could mix a focus on my subject area with some of the broader conceptual sessions that took place.

The Practical Pedagogies conference is like no other because it brings together educators from across the globe. It offers a eclectic mix of thought provoking, practical and inspiring workshops, led by an equally varied selection of people who have effective teaching and learning slap bang in the middle of their thoughts. It has formed a vital part of my CPD, and I defy anyone to attend and not be challenged and changed.

The Practical Pedagogies conference stands out from the other conferences due to the unique set up of having fellow conference members providing the sessions. These sessions are relevant and provide hands-on techniques that are useful for all teachers of any age. The family-like atmosphere created by Russel allows all conference members to socialise and interact with fellow educators from around the world. The money saved on this very affordable conference can then be used on the pub crawl where the truly deep pedagogical discussions take place!
