To order project, fiction and museum boxes go to the online order form.  You may order as many boxes as you wish up to the limit for your size of school.

You can  order up to a year in advance.  

The last date for ordering is 4pm on the last day of the term before required.  e.g. for boxes required  for the Spring Term you will need to order by the last day of the Autumn Term.  The database will close at this time and not re-open until the start of the new term.
