Sorry, but you already have a basket with that name. Please use something else.

Supporting English Hub schools

English Hub schools have been tasked with promoting a love of reading and to support schools in their surrounding areas in providing excellent phonics and early language teaching.

With eight decades of experience and an expert team of librarians and curriculum specialists based in-house, Peters are passionate about getting children to read for pleasure. We can also advise on the best resources to support phonics and early language development.

We can support your English Hub in the following ways: 

Expert advice
