Pricing and purchasing
JCS prices for individual schools are guaranteed by publishers to be the lowest available. JCS provides further discounts of up to 80% when schools subscribe to a resource through a consortium of 2,500+ learners.
If there is already a regional consortium for your resource, you automatically receive the discounted rate for your subscription.
If there is not yet a consortium for a resource, you can help change this by spreading the word to other schools in your region.
If you would like a quotation, or to arrange a subscription, please contact us.
Please note that subscription fees are payable in sterling only.
