John Carpenter Bookshop

at the City of London School


Seasonal Greetings Cards now available to buy online, designed by City Pupils in aid of this year’s School charity, ‘Papyrus’.


Pupils, Staff and Parents

The Bookshop will be open before the Winter Concert on the 7th December for browsing and you are warmly invited to pop in and browse.

The Bookshop is now open as normal and bubbling restrictions have been lifted, however, pupils are still requested to wear face masks in the shop as it is an enclosed space. We are thrilled to welcome back our pupil volunteers this term, so if you would like to help in running the shop, just pop in and have a chat with the Manager.


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 during the current restrictions. 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 indie bookseller, so we’d be delighted if you adopted us! For more information click on ‘About Us’ at the top of the page.
