Usborne for schools

Support every level of your pupils' education with Usborne's award-winning service to schools.

Usborne books are trusted by teachers and education professionals everywhere for their impeccable quality, and are guaranteed to engage, educate and entertain children of all ages. In 2014, Usborne was awarded the IPG Children's Publisher and Independent Publisher of the Year awards.

Celebrate reading with Usborne

Whether you're looking to hold a book fair, want to have a sponsored reading event, or are looking to have book stalls at events such as parents' evenings or summer fêtes, I can provide your school with generous offers, exclusive discounts and free books.

How it works

I take care of everything, tailoring the whole event to suit your school timetable, curriculum and, of course, your pupils. I will:

  • Advertise, organise, attend and supervise the entire event.
  • Do all the paperwork and take and arrange orders, so that teachers don’t lose any valuable teaching time.
  • Offer children and parents a wealth of advice and information on choosing the right book.
  • Bag and deliver each order direct to the classroom or library for free (within seven working days).

What next?

“Ready, Steady… Read! is one of the easiest reading events we have held and one of the most profitable! All the hard work was done by our local Usborne representative. I would recommend it to any busy teacher or Literacy Co-ordinator.”
Mrs Sarah Watson,
Deputy Headteacher of Briary Primary School
