Booksellers

Once you have created your wishlist, you might want to use it to help you create an order with a bookseller or supplier. 

Please note that CLPE cannot supply the books listed on this website.

We have put together a list of booksellers known to us. Their details are listed below in alphabetical order.

Before placing an order, we recommend that you contact your chosen supplier and establish terms regarding supply, delivery and educational discounts. Most will supply a quotation before you confirm your order.  Some also offer additional services such as book covering.  Establishing a relationship with a local bookseller can bring many benefits for a school.

We would be pleased to receive recommendations to add to this list. If you have a recommendation please send it to [email protected]
