Both infant and junior learners need the right school books. We believe that as pupils move through the school, the tools they are given to support and frame their learning are crucial in helping them find their own preferred learning style and personality. That’s why all our schoolbooks for both junior and infant pupils are designed to support learning in both a formal and visual way – making them accessible to children of all ages and learning styles.

Our collection of junior and infant schoolbooks include homework books to support home development and learning outside the classroom, and a selection of exercise books which can be used for different lessons with different styles of paper inside the covers. We also offer dedicated subject books for different age groups to support optimum immersive learning and understanding. To encourage active learning outside the classroom as well as in a formal school setting, all our exercise books come in a selection of sizes from A4 down to more portable jotters for notetaking on the go.


Welcome to our online shop. We create, manufacture and supply a wide-range of printing for schools. Our range includes Exercise Books (with and without personalisation), Comics, Reading Records and other Pupil Books, Banners, Greeting Cards, Posters and much much more.

  • Homework Diaries & Planners

    Homework Diaries & Planners (2)

    When it comes to tracking progress, we know how hard it can be to create consistent communication between the teachers setting the homework and the parents making sure that work gets completed on time and to an adequate standard. Our selection of Homework Archives books makes it possible for teachers to monitor the quality of homework over the set period of time and ensures that parents can always keep an eye on what has been set and when it is due – as well as the standard of the book completed by their child. For children, homework archives products also support and facilitate high quality learning, helping them plan their time and complete all their homework in a dedicated book. Our homework archives are tailormade for different age groups, providing the correct layout and usability required by pupils of different ages and abilities. These archives and products are designed to be as interactive and engaging as possible to keep pupils interested in their own progress – and to remove the old school excuse that “the dog ate the homework”. Unless the dog likes a fully printed homework book, that excuse will no longer fly! Explore the full collection to see our range of homework books available to all year groups and all pupils.
  • Phonics Books

    Phonics Books (3)

    Getting to grips with phonics is something that starts early in the education system, with children taught to recognise different sounds and the verbal formation of certain letters at a young age. Structuring this kind of learning in a classroom can be challenging, and so our collection of Phonics resources and activity books help your child to understand different words and sounds they have heard and how to use them to create full sentences and longer phrases. Our collection covers three different learning levels, with lots of imagery used inside to support the child’s learning and development. We have also left space inside each of the books for the child to jot down books that they have read and shared with the class at school, creating the seamless communication between school and home that allows parents to support and understand what their child is working on. Each book contains space for phonics and words, and parent comments as well as teacher observations. All our books come in packs of 10 and are lightweight and easy for pupils to carry around in a school bag.
  • Reading Records

    Reading Records (5)

    Learning to read is a crucial stage of education – learning how to read critically and evaluate a book is the next step for primary age children, and is one supported completely by our Reading Record book collection. These books, designed for different stages of learning and different age groups, are designed to give both pupils and teachers a place to comment on the strength of reading and a child’s ability to discuss and understand what they have read in one place. Each double page spread gives adequate space for comments on the book, the pupil’s ability to analyse the book, and the teacher’s own comments on the child’s commitment to developing their own reading. Reading records are an excellent tool that support learning at home, with most schools encouraging children to continue reading and track their progress in their own time as well as during school hours. These reading diaries for primary school students make that process easier to follow and more streamlined for both parents and teachers and give pupils something to work towards and be proud of.
  • Spelling Books

    Spelling Books (3)

    Support the crucial development of spelling skills with our collection of Spelling books and resources ideally suited for primary aged children. Our collection of Spelling resources offer different styles of learning, with a pocket sized book that pupils can carry around with them and joy down new words they come across, complementing our Spelling Writing book which is made up of different columns – allowing the teacher to write the word in the first column and then give pupils a chance to cover it and try and remember how it was spelt. Spelling is a crucial aspect of early learning and so all of our spelling resources are designed for use by primary school children upwards – with simple formatting and lots of space for corrections and errors. After all, the best way to learn is through trial and error – and that’s that these books are for. Each of our spelling books are available in packs of 10 and are A5 sized and lightweight for portability.
