About the Authors
  • John Howard Whitehouse (1873–1955) was a British educationalist, social reformer and the founder of Bembridge School on the Isle of Wight. In this book, which was first published in 1928, Whitehouse provides a concise account of life at Bembridge and the methods employed by the school. A vision is put forward in which, without compromising more conventionally academic areas, arts and crafts are presented as being central to the process of 'spiritual and intellectual education'. Numerous illustrative figures are also included, revealing aspects of life at the school and works created by the students. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the ideas of Whitehouse and the history of education.
