 Reviews: The Philosophy Shop is a much needed corrective, because at its heart it is encouraging young people to think, and to think independently of exams. Anthony Seldon, Master of Wellington College and author Very impressed,

 I completely agree that introducing core philosophical issues to students with a ‘hook’ that grabs them is the best way to approach the subject. Ian Tustin, lead teacher of religion and philosophy, Wadham School
