Terms and Conditions

  1. Ordering

    1.1 Orders can be placed online on this website or by phone, fax, post or through customer's official ordering processes depending on the school or organisation. Please check with finance officers first if phone orders are allowed or official order numbers must be quoted.


    1.3 From receipt of order, the average turnaround time of goods can be from 1-10 working days depending on availability and to a certain extent the publisher involved but on average it is 5 working days.

    1.4 All goods are despatched on a 2 day service. When signing for deliveries please make sure that the correct number of parcels are signed for and that boxes are received in good condition. Claims for shortages when the parcels have been signed for incorrectly cannot be considered.

    1.5 Any titles not available due to them being out of stock, re-printing etc. are coded as follows:

    Items with X Codes.


    These are products that are in the process of being reprinted by the publisher and are expected to be available within the next three months. In these cases we record your purchase and as soon as the products are made available we will despatch them to you. They will be sent with free delivery and addressed to the department that ordered the goods. In these cases you do not have to take any action as the delivery will be completed once the goods are back in stock.


    Items with Z Codes.


    These are products that are in the process of being reprinted by the publisher but are not expected to be available for some time or where there is no information as to when they will be available. In these cases we do not record your purchase as by the time they become available you may well have decided that you no longer want them and then it becomes a logistical problem in retrieving goods no longer required. If however you do require the goods we would ask you to submit a new order for them allowing at least three months to elapse before doing so. If they are then available we will despatch them by the normal channels.
