Project boxes

Please read our information on how we are supporting residents and businesses, as well as information on affected services.


Each term, schools can borrow a selection of boxes to support classroom teaching and boost the school library stock in key topic areas. Boxes include:

  • project
  • fiction
  • language
  • museum

How many boxes can I borrow?

The total number of boxes that can be borrowed by a school each term is based on the number of pupils on roll.  See table below.

*Please note the numbers used to calculate allocation are based on figures provided by the Education Department. These are taken from the January section of the School Census.
