We are pleased to announce that The Scholastic Book Fair is returning Oathall for the first time in two years.

The event is open to all Oathall students and will be in the College Library from Monday 29 November until Thursday 2 December. Opening times are below: 

  • From 08:30 am until Tutor Time
  • Every Lunch Time (but not Breaktimes)
  • After school until 4 pm


Scholastic is encouraging families to pay online rather than send students into school with cash, and we will follow that guidance. To this end, students will be given a My Wish List with all relevant payment information, which they can fill in and bring home. We will still accept cash, but we would prefer online payment where possible.

You can also buy vouchers in advance of the fair to give to your child, and details can be found here

Scholastic have provided a list of just some of the books they have for children aged 11 and over – although they bring hundreds more with them!

If we sell over £300 worth of books, Scholastic will give 10% credit to the school to spend at the fair, so it is a win-win for us all. Your children get new books for themselves and also contribute to more books for our Library, so thank you in advance for your support.

The Library is also running a competition for our students, with the top five winners receiving a £5 voucher to spend at the fair. Every entry will earn a Library Skills credit, plus the opportunity to get their review submitted to the Lindfield Life magazine.

Thank you for your support.
