Schools Library Service

The Service Offer

Subscription Services  Buy as You Need Services

The Schools Library Service offers academies the easiest way to support curriculum and reading for pleasure needs. By borrowing resources from our vast range of up to date and stimulating books and artefacts, we believe we can bring you the greatest return on investment possible.  The average cost of a new children’s book is £8, but borrowing from us gives an average price in most cases of less than £2.  Our service offers you unparalleled value for money in delivering high quality resources to every learner.


  • We save you money – it is cheaper to borrow books from us than purchase them directly.
  • We save you time – our professionals research and assess the books we provide ensuring the books are up to date, relevant and of the highest quality. This gives you more time to focus on lessons and using our resources to support your curriculum.
  • Our service helps academies to improve learning resources and respond quickly to curriculum demands.

Why Buy our Service

Sourcing, selecting and buying books and then arranging for delivery and collection is a time-consuming process and buying books for your academy can be costly. Our service offers the most cost-effective way for you to access a rich supply of titles. Borrowing books and resources in bulk ensures you always have up to date fiction and class topic books available to supplement and enhance your purchased books.  Our stock is carefully selected afresh for each box to provide materials of high quality, breadth and relevance to academies. 

We have introduced an exciting new set of subscriptions for 2015/16 that provide you with greater choice over access to books, artefacts, whiteboard resources and library advice so that you can choose what is right for you.  If you don’t find the bands suit your requirements, let us know and we can provide a completely tailored service to meet your individual school needs.
