How it Works

The delivery and collection service is available to all schools as part of their service agreement.

This means that at the end of every term the SLS van will call at your school and collect that term's blue topic boxes, artefact boxes and art loan.  The school will be contacted approximately 2 weeks before the end of term to let you know on which day the van will be calling in your area. These dates are also posted on our social media.  We ask that schools not requiring a pick up to please let us know by phoning 01670 620072 or e-mailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

Schools which have requested topic boxes or other items will have these automatically delivered to them within the first 7 days of the new term.

Collections and deliveries are made to one central point at your school; usually the main reception area.  Can all of the blue topic boxes please be stacked available from the pick up point from 0730 on the day of collection.  A reminder is also sent out on social media the day before & on the day of your routes collection.  If you are not sure which route your school is on we can let you know.

Please be aware that any blue topic boxes that are not returned on the collection service may incur a separate charge.  Blue boxes are also unable to be collected from schools when we are there to deliver the next term's blue topic boxes.
