John Carpenter Bookshop

at the City of London School


Pupils, Staff and Parents

The physical store is now open once again in-person visits and for click and collect (although we are still posting out orders too). Parents, pupils, staff can still order online and collect from the store or Reception at School (for members of the public see below). For in-person visits, there is a strict socially distanced queuing system and only one pupil is allowed in the shop at any one time.


Shop Accounts

If you would like to top-up a pupil’s bookshop account (for use in the physical store), 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 lockdown. 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.
