Sempringham Studies

Sempringham Studies have a skilful blend of narrative and analysis.

‘… attractively laid out … there is a clear logic to the books … If you are looking for topic books that will appeal to all your students, then do check out these books. Sempringham Studies, carefully structured for teachers and students, are strongly placed to meet the needs of the new A Level in 2000. At the very least, your Library should have them.'
