Our History


Company History

It all started back in 1978 when Neville Garner, EPB’s owner and Managing Director, produced the UK’s first Teacher’s Planner. He had been in the teaching profession for more than 17 years and knew what was needed; The Teacher’s Planner had to be the right design at the right price.

Year by year sales increased and ‘The Teacher’s Planner’ became established as the key planning book for secondary school teachers; today more than 60% of secondary schools buy the planner.

The Original Teacher’s Planner from 1978

A range of planning books for lower years, GCSE students and 6th Form students followed along with Record Books, Governor’s Files and a range of planning books for Primary School teachers and pupils.
Several printing firms have copied our products but we have stayed ahead of the game.

We have a devoted team of workers, some of whom have been with the company for nearly 20 years, who are dedicated to ensuring a first class service.
