Textbooks and Stationery

Generic - Bookshop

“The Bird and Bush” is the Somerset College Retail Centre which stocks stationery requirements for students. Before the commencement of the school year, students Years 3 to 12 receive their textbook and stationery requirements, via a book list purchased online.

Please note that the Bird and Bush (Retail Centre) does not stock textbooks in store.

Purchases for return-to-school supplies are made through Campion, the College’s official resource supplier of textbooks and stationery items. The link and instructions for ordering can be found in the Resources section of this page. Online ordering for the following year opens during Term Four for students who will be in Years 3 to 12 the following year. Books and stationery items are delivered to your home address in January. We strongly recommend textbook and stationery requirements are purchased in this way, so all students start the year with the correct books.

For students in Pre-Prep to Year 2, costs will be included in the Services Fee and all items will be delivered directly to the classroom teacher at the start of the year.

During the year, top-up stationery is available for purchase in the Retail Centre. For textbook purchases during the year, please use the Order Your Book Pack for 2018 link to the right-hand side of this page and order through Campion. Students from Years 3 to 12 can use their student Smartcard to make payment.

For independent textbook purchases, please use the 2018 Textbook ISBN List link to the right-hand side of this page to verify that you are purchasing the correct editions.

Second-hand textbooks can be purchased online through the Sustainable School Shop.

Please note:

  • When purchasing second-hand textbooks with an e-book, you are not purchasing the e-book, you are simply purchasing the textbook only.
  • The activation code inside the cover will be invalid, as it only holds a 12 month subscription that cannot be renewed.
  • If you require a textbook with the accompanying e-book, you must purchase new through our preferred supplier Campion Education.
