School Loans Service: Items Available for Loan

updated August 2018

We have themed boxes on different topics and a wide range of individual items.

If possible, please give two weeks’ notice of a loan. School Loans is a part-time volunteer-run service. We try to meet urgent requests but cannot guarantee it. If you let us know well in advance, we will reserve items for you.

Please note that all items are subject to availability

To keep costs low we cannot delivery or collect items. You will need to arrange transport.

Posters

These posters (about A2 size) are mostly from the Macmillan’ History Pictures series, produced for use in schools during the 1950s. They are fairly stylised but convey ideas that may be helpful, quite apart from illustrating education in the mid-20th century.

In some cases there are two copies of the same poster: these are marked (‘second copy Pxxx’ to assist with our cataloguing). Order these posters by the reference in the left-hand column.
