Who we are
Brilliant Publications Limited is an independent educational publisher committed to creating resources that make teaching and learning enjoyable and rewarding for both teachers and pupils.
Brilliant Publications was established in 1993 in as a partnership between Priscilla Hannaford and Irene Yates. Both Priscilla and Irene were teachers prior to becoming a publisher and have always been involved in the educational sector. Brilliant Publications became a limited company in April 2016.
The company is based on the Sparrow Hall Farm Business Park in the small village of Edlesborough, on the Bedfordshire/ Buckinghamshire border in England. We have an idyllic view of Edlesborough Church from our windows, as shown in the photo.
What makes our books different?
We focus on producing high quality, well-designed materials that make teaching and learning enjoyable and rewarding for both teachers and pupils.
We are committed to producing materials that allow children aged 2–14 to learn and develop skills.
We believe that children learn best in the following ways:
• By playing and actively joining in
• When they are challenged
• When they perceive the activity as relevant, fun and enjoyable
• When they are rewarded with success
• Through practice and reinforcement
We produce materials to support all of these ways of learning.
