Curriculum project loans

Curriculum project loans are the most popular offer at Learning Resources for Education.

Every term we pack over 500 boxes of project loans for schools in the county, all containing up to 30 books and AV items to support a particular topic. AV items may include poster packs, replica packs and teacher notes. The boxes have been put together by professional staff to reflect the most requested subject areas across many different curricula, including the National Curriculum, Edison and Cornerstones.

Project loan collections are an excellent way of enhancing your school-based resources for particular subjects across the key stages. By borrowing from LRE, you save money on purchasing updated books each year and get the books delivered to you as and when they are needed.
