Loan box scheme

Loan box contents
We have a range of different science topics to choose from

We have a range of loan equipment suitable for use in supporting the teaching of primary Science.

Our loan equipment links to the primary science curriculum. We are ready to share ideas and ways to use these items to further teaching and learning in school. We can also offer professional development (including bespoke) to support individual teachers or a whole school staff. Please feel free to contact us to find out how we can help.

Any school wishing to borrow equipment is required to send a member of staff to our twilight training session, prior to use, for which we make a small charge, following this use of loan equipment is FREE. We usually hold a twilight training session each term, please see the list of primary courses. Each session includes practical ideas for the teaching of science. To make sure you don't miss out on our courses you can join our mailing list

Normally we loan equipment for the duration of half a term. Our equipment is loaned on a ‘first come’ basis, therefore we cannot guarantee equipment will always be available. Schools are required to accept our terms and conditions and our disclaimer prior to the loan of any equipment. We ask for any items that are lost or damaged to be replaced by the school at their own cost.
