Custom Exercise Books

Exactly match each subject's processes and systems

We take a different approach to customised exercise books for schools. We fully customise them for your school, not simply a school name and logo overprinted on the cover. You can customise covers and inside pages for all subjects, just like our customised planners.

  • Any page rulings or grids
  • Add any marking scheme, including on the exercise pages
  • Add subject support pages
  • Exactly match your school’s brand

Our expert team will design anything you need. We have hundreds of page ideas you can use or adapt for maths, English, science, design and technology, handwriting and anything else you can think of. Use as they are, amend or ask us to create original pages and our design team will perfect them for your school.

Easy to customise each page type

  1. Choose any exercise book page ruling or style. Alternatively, give us a specification to create one for you.
  2. Consider adding your marking, feedback or peer review systems to the exercise pages. This can save time and expense over your current ways of working.
  3. Enhance your school exercise books with subject support pages. Include anything from marking criteria to formula sheets.
  4. Bring each exercise book editions to life with custom covers. Reflect your school brand or makes each department really stand out.

Perfect for all marking and feedback methods

Adding feedback systems to your exercise book pages can significantly help productivity and consistency. Our customised exercise books are perfect for all marking and feedback methods. These could include:

  • EBI (Even Better If)
  • WWW (What Went Well)
  • Live marking

You could include a dedicated space in your exercise books for showing that verbal feedback has been given for each piece.

No more sticking in sheets

It can be difficult to give thorough feedback without having to write or stick over part of your students’ work.

Customising can dramatically reduce your costs – particularly if you are currently using labels or sticking in feedback forms.

If you’re using feedback stickers or stamps, we can create a spot on each page for them without covering work.

You can see examples in our information pack and can ask us to design to your own specification.
