This Kit is designed to support those inspired individuals and groups
who feel led to start a Friends school. The Kit includes an overview of
key issues and a collection of resources to provide information and
inspiration for the journey.

Friends School) which includes, among other things, an annotated
bibliography of additional resources that you may want to purchase on
your own from other sources.
