Welcome to Book Fair Takeover

The idea is simple: let your pupils take over your Book Fair!

With tips, timelines and a comprehensive toolkit, our free resources will give your pupils the confidence and independence to run your Book Fair as a class or whole school enterprise project. Every pupil – no matter their skills or experience – can apply for jobs and practise entrepreneurial skills as they take part in planning and promoting the Book Fair as a team.

Strong links to the curriculum in the areas of Financial understanding, PSHE and Citizenship, Mathematics, English, ICT, Art and Design ensure that Book Fair Takeover is a valuable – and fun – educational experience.

Giving your pupils a personal investment in the Book Fair’s success will engage them with books and reading and can create a real buzz, involving more parents, pupils and school staff. This boost in excitement and attendance can help to earn more free books and teacher’s resources for your classrooms and libraries.
