Scholastic Book Fair

What is a Scholastic Book Fair?

A Scholastic Book Fair is a wonderful reading event held in school for everyone to enjoy. Scholastic supplies us with mobile bookcases packed with the  books to sell to our pupils to help them develop a life-long love of reading.

All about the books!

A Scholastic Book Fair puts the very best books into our pupils’ hands. That means over 200 top children’s titles from over fifty publishers, carefully chosen to reflect all tastes and abilities.  Books start from only £2.99, plus there are titles that aren’t available in the shops or at any other fairs; there’s sure to be a book for everyone!

Free books for your school!

Our school will benefit from a Scholastic Book Fair too! Every book sold at our Fair will help to get free books for school.

At our last book fair we sold approximately £745 worth of books and other items.

Thank you!

I believe that’s the most we have ever sold.  This means that we can buy more books for our school.
