We're always looking to improve your experience. Please send us your feedback.
The Education Library Service offers schools who buy in a cost effective way of supporting curriculum needs.
Schools can purchase a book allowance with the quantity and flexibility to suit their individual needs. Schools may use their allowance to support the curriculum, reading for pleasure or boosting their School Library collection.
For example, an allowance of 100 books, swapped every half term, enables a school to use 600 different items during the year. All this for a cost of around £597 (based on 2020 prices).
To purchase 600 new titles for your school could cost almost £8,000, as the average price for new hardback curriculum books is £12.99.
Books owned by schools will deteriorate and become out of date over time. Books borrowed from ELS will be constantly refreshed and replaced as often as you like with new and up to date resources in good condition.
For mail order you can phone or e-mail us, see our contact us page.
Or, use our online order form.
To save you time, our specialist librarians will then create resource collections to match your classroom needs.
Collections will be delivered direct to schools on our regular van delivery service.
Alternatively, our staff will be happy to help with your selection if you wish to visit to our showroom and choose your own resources.
