We’re passionate about our bookshop – we love sharing our knowledge, showing you unusual books and making surprising connections between what we have on the shelf and what you want to offer in the classroom.
We pride ourselves on being able to find you rich, quality texts and we have a huge range of fiction and non-fiction books on the shelves and a wide knowledge of what else is available.
Ordering from us is easy – just call in, pick up the phone, or email us or try out our new online shop
A great way of seeing what’s new is to come into the shop and pick straight off the shelves.
Details of discounts for schools are available on request.
Are a brilliant way of topping up a class or school library. We’ll send you a selection of new and exciting books – all ‘gift wrapped’ in bright paper and bows. Opening the parcels with the children becomes an event in itself and creates a buzz about the books!
We can put together an eclectic and creative collection of books to match teachers’ topics… we’re organised and have lots of imagination!
We can supply gift vouchers to any value. Great as school prizes, incentives or rewards. Simply Books vouchers come with a treat in our cafe which makes a visit to the shop to spend the voucher an occasion in itself! We can also supply National Book Tokens.
What better way for a whole staff group to share our excitement about books than for us to host a meeting in the shop. Enjoy afternoon tea and then we’ll help you select books.
Some of our very best moments in the shop are with children who come on our ‘bookshop tour’. We can tailor a ‘tour’ to a focus of your choosing but it’s likely to involve an introduction to the shop, Q & A about what we do here and selecting books off the shelves. Topped off with hot chocolate and homemade brownies round the big table upstairs!
One of the most exciting (and memorable) experiences in school for children is to meet an author/illustrator. For schools with whom we work the author visits that we arrange are the ‘icing on the cake’.
An event when we invite schools to bring groups of children to meet a top author – with an emphasis on learning, enjoyment and entertainment.
