Our Story

Esse Publishing is a family run educational publisher specialising in high quality study guides designed to support pupils and teachers from the class room to the exam room as they prepare for their GCSEs. Our company is founded and run entirely by teachers, with the aim of stretching pupils to their full potential.

We are very much a ‘local’ company – we work with local printers, suppliers, distributors and schools wherever possible, and over time we have developed a wide variety of relationships with those in the English teaching community, all working together to provide the very best for our pupils.

Every edition of The Quotation Bank is co-authored by teachers who are actively teaching in the classroom today. 

Bringing together 25 years of teaching experience, a wealth of subject expertise and intimate knowledge of the exam system, The Quotation Bank authors bring together exam, subject and classroom experience to provide you with the key ingredients for exam success.

Partnerships and collaborations:
We have worked closely with our print and design team at Target Print of Cottenham (https://www.targetprint.org/) since the very beginning.

This year we have been proud to partner with LitDrive (https://litdrive.org.uk/) in helping build and develop an English teaching community that has resource sharing at the heart of everything it does.

We were also thrilled to be able to provide the brilliant @Team_English1 National Conference 2019 with a variety of The Quotation Bank guides for their nearly 500 delegates!
