The Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain was founded in 1964, at a meeting at 'Uplands House' in High Wycombe, UK. The following year, the first annual conference was held at Webb House in Surrey, followed in 1966 by the publication of the first Proceedings of the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain. This would later become the Journal of Philosophy of Education.

The Cambridge Branch formed early in the Society's history, and this year marks its 45th anniversary. A history of the Cambridge branch can be found here.
As the Society's membership grew, so too did its network of branches across the UK. There are 24 branches today, across the UK and in continental Europe.
As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, we will continue to add to this history. If you have been involved in the Society during its first fifty years and have memories and memorabilia you would like to share, please do get in touch.
