Get children reading with Stew – and make money for your school!


Stew has launched a scheme to help teachers develop children’s literacy – and generate much-needed cash for their classrooms at the same time.

This bi-monthly magazine is full of informative features on the arts, science, history and world affairs. It also includes short stories, news pages and puzzles, and stimulates creativity by encouraging youngsters to submit their own stories and illustrations.

Since its launch in January 2014, the magazine has been widely praised by parents, schools and the media, with the Daily Telegraph saying: ‘Its illustrations are brilliant, its prose lucid and literate’.

Each school that receives the magazine can take part in Stew’s Get Children Reading campaign.

How the scheme works:

After subscribing to Stew, your school will be given a unique code. If you like the magazine, simply tell parents and carers about it and mention the code. Your school will then get a percentage of every order that quotes the code. The more people you encourage to subscribe, the more your school will earn.

What your school will get:

An annual subscription is just £20. Your school will make £2 from every order that quotes your unique code. We will collate your sales data and send you regular payments.

 To take part, just follow these instructions.

  1. Click on the schools’ subscription page at
  2. Enter your school’s details
  3. In the School ID box, write: Get Children Reading
  4. Go to checkout.

Once we’ve received confirmation of your order, we’ll email you your unique code.

To help you, we’ve included a template letter here that you can copy and paste to parents and carers if you wish:

Dear Parents and Carers

Please join us in a scheme that not only aims to promote children’s literacy and learning but will also raise money for the school.
