What are the best school planners to buy?

Posted on 06.02.2017 By Andrea Harrison

We really do have a solution for any schools’ homework and teacher planner needs!

As a major supplier of school homework diaries and school teacher planners for over 20 years, we know there are two main types schools look to purchase:

1) bespoke, customised, tailored to exact needs, premium, or
2) generic, off the shelf, budget, one style fits all, or dare we say it, bog standard

What are the pros and cons?
Both of these school planners have their own “pros and cons” – but, it’s become a minefield for what’s on offer in the world of school homework and school teacher planners. In less than 5 minutes you can probably request a dozen free samples from various school planner suppliers, all offering different features, benefits and special offers to grab your attention and your school’s planner business!

Here at we offer a solution for both types of school planners. In these financially challenging times, we appreciated cost can be at the top of any schools’ purchasing criteria – however, we also believe in offering “best value”, so we consider cost along with other aspects such as quality, durability, creativity and reliable service.

What do we want our school’s planners to actually do?
To help you come to a decision on which school planner is most suitable for your school we recommend you ask yourself this question.

1) bespoke, customised, tailored to exact needs, premium

Our branded and bespoke school planner service is perfect for this type of planner. We work closely with our clients to understand their needs to create school planners which reflect their brand, goals, values and vision.
