Lined paper is one of the most valuable learning tools for every school to have in stock, from the early days of handwriting through to the spelling years, creative and critical writing years, and onto essays. That’s why we offer a wide range of different lined exercise books with different sized lines and different exercise book structures – including pure lined paper and lined paper paired with blank pages to encourage optimum creativity.
Lined paper helps children to structure and format their writing correctly and is integral in building their understanding of spatial awareness on the page. Our lined paper with margins helps with everyday learning and allows teachers to add comments at the side of each pupil’s work, while our margin-less options encourage pupils to use the full page and structure their writing in their own way.
All our lined exercise books come in a variety of sizes with different line heights, offering the ideal solution for every age group and ability. Lined exercise books can also be laminated or added to our bespoke package with your school logo added.
