UK schools publishing – Science, Geography, MFL, English, Music…

Modern Foreign Language and Science courses have featured significantly in Hart McLeod’s recent portfolio. In 2011 we produced over 3,000 pages of Science materials for Collins Education, supporting their publishing of student and teacher resources for the AQA and OCR syllabuses.

With the exam specifications still not approved by the Spring of the year, there was intense pressure to get everything ready for schools before they broke up in July. Happily, but not without a few stresses and strains, the materials arrived in the market place on time. Project management and client liaison skills were vital in order to effectively use the time and resources we had.

Alongside this work was a major programme of audio recording for the award winning MYLO language web site. Hart McLeod was privileged to be asked to produce the character voices for the site – all created by native speaking voiceover artists in studios we use in both Cambridge and London.

MFL titles

Working closely with one client over a number of titles builds an understanding of procedures and systems, as well as good personal relationships.

School books

Since our first school book 25 years ago, we have covered numerous subjects with a wide range of UK and international clients.



We use specialist editors and setters for languages such as Mandarin but our in-house team for project management, author liaison, photo research, artwork etc.

Project management

Whatever the subject, the skills remain the same: practical layout, affordable artwork, interesting photos and general clarity of presentation.


Using native speakers, Hart McLeod has achieved a great deal, not least in urging Spanish people to speak slowly enough for people learning the language! These samples cover French for GCSE and Spanish and German for A-level.
