We are happy to handle orders for education organisations. The orders can be sent to us by post, fax or email. We offer a free delivery service and an education-discount.
We welcome teachers, librarians and lecturers at any time and - with prior notice - can open in an evening to allow a group to browse and purchase in a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Alternatively we can send out specific selection boxes for people in education to look through.
Book Fairs and Conferences
We provide books, on a sale or return basis, for fairs and events at schools, colleges and other venues. The books are chosen on a basis of prior discussion with someone from the host institution; the books may be for children themselves or for purchase by parents, teachers, students or lecturers. We can staff such an event or alternatively just provide books plus support.
From time to time we visit schools, colleges and universities to talk to teachers, lecturers, tutors or students about books on specific topics, about the choosing of books or about the processes that go into the making of a book.
We can often help to find authors to visit schools and colleges - and support visits by providing books. We ourselves make no charge for this - but, of course, many authors naturally have a set fee they charge. Nevertheless - often in conjunction with a supporting publisher - we can sometimes arrange visits for which no fee is charged. Naturally we give priority to regular customers for free visits.
We can provide free book posters, other display material and bookmarks.
Subject to payment by the end of the month following a purchase, we offer a discount on all educational orders.
We are experienced in meeting school and college needs. Our knowledgeable staff can offer book advice around curriculum areas including the literacy hour, QCA schemes of work, SATS requirements and SEAL.
