About Gardner Education

Welcome to the Gardner Education website.

As ever, we strive to bring you the best and widest selection of quality literacy resources available from one source. There are lots of great new titles from a range of specialist publishers for guided reading and reading for pleasure. Here are just some of the well-regarded suppliers we work with:


All of our titles are carefully graded by reading experts and where appropriate, are independently Book Banded and have had Reading Recovery levels applied.

Many of our titles are listed by Book Bands for Guided Reading, the National Literacy Association, the Catch Up Literacy Organisation, the Reading Recovery Network, as well as many other worthy organisations and publications. In short, you can use our publications with confidence knowing they have been thoroughly researched and trialled prior to publication.

We are delighted that the Alphakids Programme in particular has been 'recommended' in the new Book Bands for Guided Reading 4th Edition.

As well as support for keen readers, we have lots of new as well as proven books to encourage struggling readers and young people who can read but don’t. From books with a range of accessibility features and high-low editing, to graphic novels and quick reads to broaden reading tastes – Gardner has something for you, along with free samples, competitions, clever combinations of titles and lots of money-saving special offers.

Special offer packs are highlighted by series and we have also put together some NEW special offer packs by theme – EAL packs, packs appealing to girls who struggle to read, packs appealing to boys who struggle to read and much more.

Alternatively, you can browse or download our catalogue and price list from the 'Catalogue' link.

We do hope that you enjoy using the materials on this website and as always welcome any feedback you may have. If you would like to see any of our titles please don't hesitate to get in touch. We can arrange for one of our local representatives to visit you in school, or to send you samples for evaluation.  Thank you.
