Resources for your school library (Pay As Used)

1. Artefact boxes & bundles

What are artefact boxes? 

Bring learning to life for your pupils by hiring one of our exciting artefact boxes. Ideal for  teaching history, geography and religious studies.

They can be used in the classroom and the library, and are excellent for creating eye catching displays. 

What do they include?

Each box contains on average 10 items.

They come carefully packed in a sturdy box and can be delivered and returned via our delivery service. Most items are replicas of objects and some are original. All include a range of 3D items, a list of content and guidance notes.

Who are these for?

The artefact service is used by schools in and outside the county. 

They are available to all primary and secondary schools to hire. They are delivered and collected free of charge to your school for a period of 4 weeks.
