Starboxes, Value & Explorer Boxes
For those on a specific budget, we have produced Value
Boxes (£100-£110) containing
a good selection of the more popular artefacts for each
subject. In some categories we offer Explorer
Boxes (£200-£220) which
have a larger selection. Both boxes offer great value for
money & are ideal for teachers where time is at a premium.
Our new Starboxes
are unique collections and super value.
Not only do we supply schools with our great products -
we also sell to private individuals, retailers, museum shops,
interior designers and film, tv & theatre companies.
We welcome all enquiries, large or small, - we're happy
to hear from you. Please phone, fax or email us. We do accept
credit & debit cards over the telephone.
You are most welcome to visit our warehouse in Ripon, we
are very easy to find. We're on the edge of town & are
just a few minutes from the motorway. We are sometimes open
on a Saturday or Sunday, and post this on our website and
Twitter etc. If you are planning to call in through the
week, please contact us first to make an appointment as
very occasionally we are all out at an exhibition, sale
event or course etc.
for visiting our web site which I hope you find is easy
to use. Over the years, Starbeck's range of products have
grown & I know we are now, without doubt, the only company
in the UK offering such a huge & diverse range of history,
religious and art-based artefacts specifically for use in
the classroom. We are particularly excited about our range
of history artefacts which we are adding to week by week.
Over the last few years, we have seen the gradual closure
of School Library Services in many parts of the country.
We are an alternative source for this vital service offering
many ways to obtain artefacts, cost effectively, when the
traditional supply line has closed.
We can provide you with genuine affordable artefacts which
are often special, sometimes amazing, sometimes unique,
but most importantly will stimulate your students &
impact your classroom.
So far, over 8,000 schools have used our service, so hopefully,
we're doing something right! Welcome to Starbeck Educational
Resources. Have fun!"
