About us

Learning Resources for Education are a team of professionals who can provide your school library and staff with ​resources and support to provide your students with the best possible learning experience.

Service offer

There are different aspects to our service. 

Are you interested in subscribing to LRE, or borrowing resources on an ad-hoc basis? You can view the different subscriptions and 'tailor maade' service on our subscriptions page.

Once you know what subscription you would like, or what resources you want to borrow, contact LRE and we will get the ball rolling.

​Subscribing schools are sent order forms prior to each 12 week term. Order forms can be returned to LRE by email, fax or post. Please submit your requests by the date stated on the form so we can guarantee delivery for the next term.

Schools wishing to borrow on an ad-hoc basis can contact LRE to discuss their requirements and to place an order.

LRE will send subscribing schools a list of all planned delivery and collection dates for the year when they subscribe. We aim to deliver within the first six teaching days of each school term. Please make sure you submit your requests on time so we can make sure they are delivered to you in good time. Any late requests may be delivered at a later date depending on van and driver availability.

Delivery is made to your school reception.

Non subscribing schools who borrow ad-hoc resources are charged £10 for delivery and collection.

Maintained schools

LRE will raise invoices for payment for subscribing schools in October of each year.


To align with the academy financial year, LRE will invoice twice: once in July for five twelfths of the total subscription cost, and then again in October for the remaining seven twelfths. Prices will have VAT added.

Out of county schools

Any schools from neighbouring counties are welcome to subscribe to LRE or borrow on an ad-hoc basis. Invoicing for out of county subscriptions will be once a year in October, and will include VAT if applicable.

Ad-hoc borrowing

Any school or setting that borrows on an ad-hoc basis will be invoiced once their resources are delivered, and will have VAT added if applicable.

All payment terms are 30 days from receipt of invoice.
