Loan Boxes

Egyptian school loan box

We can provide schools with boxes of real and replica artefacts to be used in the classroom.

Boxes are hired for a half term period and allow learners the opportunity to use the resources whilst studying a topic which helps them to develop a better understanding of the subject. These are available either half termly or by annual subscription. For more details please see our Loan Box Subscription Service.

Each box contains approximately 12-15 items (real and replica) centred on a specific topic and also includes ideas for activities.

Loan boxes are £25 for schools within the Chichester district and £30 for those outside.

To request a loan box please download our loan box form and email it to, or call 01243 775888 to speak to someone in the team
