Inspiring and educating since 1817

From humble beginnings in Birmingham, England, our business has grown to serve International schools across the world. Our family of brands includes some of the most recognised names in education. From Hope Education and Philip Harris to Davies Sports and LDA, thousands of International schools are able to get the education supplies, resources and equipment they need to inspire the next generation.

Helping International schools on (almost) every continent

We’re proud to work with International schools from across the world. Last year we shipped resources to more than 130 countries on almost every continent on our planet; the only exception being Antarctica! Our mission is to ensure that schools around the globe have access to resources and equipment that helps them inspire and educate their students.

We love speaking to schools to understand their needs (and struggles). More importantly, we love working out ways we can help you. Our dedicated International team is based in country, locally to you. What does this mean? Simply that they are on hand to help answer any questions you may have.

Services designed to make your life easier

A common theme when we speak to school leaders, teachers and practitioners around the world is the need for trust and quality. We understand that school time is precious and educational resources aren’t always at the top of your to-do list. We also recognise that when it comes to restocking at the end of a long year, the last thing you want is hundreds of deliveries from hundreds of different companies.

To make your life easier, we offer over 30,000 resources. All from one complete supplier. Whether you are looking for Maths, English and Computing resources or Science, Sport and SEN equipment, we can offer it all. We can also make unpacking your order easier. All you need to do is let us know how you want it packing (for example by teacher, classroom or phase) and we’ll do the rest.

Committed to innovation

Over the years, we’ve come to learn that the best ideas come from you. With your help, we’ve developed thousands of educational resources. All designed to help make the lives of teachers and schools across the world easier. Every one of our new products is inspired, tested and, ultimately, loved by teachers.

We work closely with a team of experts. Our ultimate aim? To create products and resources that are designed to inspire and engage young minds. What’s more, our experts also create science equipment that will help students challenge the norm and perhaps, even produce the next big scientific discovery. We’d love to hear from you if you have any ideas or suggestions for new products. Simply contact us and let us know your thoughts.
