John Carpenter Bookshop

at the City of London School

Welcome to the homepage of the John Carpenter Bookshop. There has been a independent bookshop at the City of London School for over thirty years serving our community of parents, pupils and staff. Browse this site to discover the range of products that we sell and the services we offer.

Shop Accounts

If you would like to top-up or open an account for a pupil (for use in the physical store only), click here. Sadly, we have no way currently of linking bookshop credit with this site, but we’re working on it!


General Public

The bookshop is located inside a School so is not accessible to the public without appointment. However, we have many friends in the community who have supported us over the years with email orders. You are also welcome to use this site, however we are unable to offer a click and collect service and can only post orders to members of the public.

Sadly, too many people no longer have a local independent bookshop, so we’d be delighted if you adopted us! For more information click on ‘About Us’ at the top of the page.
