Who we are

Heath Educational Books is the leading specialist school book supplier in the South East of England. With over 25 years’ experience sourcing the best educational books, and a unique teachers’ showroom with over 60,000 titles available to browse, we know how to help schools and teachers find the right resources for their cohorts.

Heath Books Ltd, run by Richard Heath, is a friendly family firm, with a proven track record of providing a fast, knowledgeable and efficient service. We know and understand the needs of busy school teachers and librarians and, through our position as independent booksellers to the educational market, pride ourselves on being able to give honest, impartial advice to our customers, as well as prompt and accurate fulfillment of orders.

What we do

  • Provide completely impartial advice and information to teachers on material suitable to their needs
  • Display a true range of educational books available
  • Supply any book in print to any school or teacher

We work with schools across the world dealing with all ages from Nursery to College level, providing resources ranging from textbooks to library books, teacher guides to reading schemes. We aim to eliminate the need for teachers to spend valuable time seeing numerous publishers’ representatives or dealing with the paperwork involved in ordering from individual publishers.

How we can help your school:

As book specialists we know our books and supply hundreds of schools with the learning materials they need every year. Here are some of the ways we help schools get the right resources for their budget.

Bulk Discounts

At Heath Books we pass on our discounts for larger orders. Across the site you’ll see special discounts offered for multiple copies purchased. Perfect if you’ve got a class order to fill.

Why not share the discounts throughout your department by combining your orders?

Library Selection

Does your school or college require a new Library or Learning Resource Centre?

We specialise in creating Libraries that work for your students. We can help guide you to providing a Library that not only ticks all the boxes for your students and staff, but meets your budget too.



“Exemplary performance, great pricing, great customer service.

We have found working with Heath Educational Books, with their encyclopaedic knowledge of all things ‘books’, to be by far one of the better of our vendor experiences.

Despite the ongoing uncertainty created by Brexit, they have excelled in terms of logistics and deliveries to our location in Belgium.

To be honest, you can’t match them for customer service, efficiency, and value for money.”

Peter Aitchison / Procurement Manager, The International School of Brussels

It is always a pleasure to visit.  Your showroom is an ideal environment to see the books and interact with them in a real life context – the size, shape, texture etc of a book is sometimes almost as important as the content itself.

In addition to the showroom, there are all of you – the Heath’s staff team. With your extensive knowledge of your stock, and your very friendly and welcoming manner, you all strike exactly the right chord in ensuring that the environment is as relaxing (to a customer!), as school is hectic. Consequently, a visitor to you has time and space to read and properly consider the potential purchases that will go on to make such a difference to the learning experiences, and even lives, of the end user children.
