What is the Student Magazine and How Does it Work?

MadRead publishes a digital Student Magazine for schools  to distribute to their students and teachers and receive a 10% discount on all books listed in the magazine as well as on all of the titles on our store.

Don’t see the book you want on our website? No problem, we will order it in for you at no extra charge so you can still use your discount and deliver it for FREE to your door.

The Magazine is published each term with new editions in January, May and September.

The 10% discount is valid for the four month period that each edition relates to and the fee is pro-rated for for the first period according to the joining date.

What are the Features and Benefits of the Student Magazine?

Age appropriate books: We hand select books for each age group to ensure that content and language is appropriate and so that students have access to the most loved classics as well as the latest publications.

Range of Genres: To encourage wider reading we offer a range of genres to help students step outside of their comfort zone and benefit from a well rounded reading experience.

Author Spotlight: We reveal some interesting facts about the authors who have written some of the world’s most loved stories to show how they come from all walks of life and to inspire the next generation of writers.

Reading Skills and Development: For each age group, we highlight some of the key skills for developing reading ability so that both students and parents are aware of important areas to focus on whilst reading.

MadRead Recommends: Sometimes it is difficult to decide what to read next so we provide our own recommendation in case your students need some inspiration.

Discounts: Schools that join our network get a 10% discount for all their students, teachers and parents too! By extending the discount to teachers and parents we hope that everyone will read more.

Free Postage: We deliver FREE to anywhere in Spain (including Balearic and Canary Islands, Ceuta and Melilla). Why do we do this? We know that readers want to spend their money on books, not stamps!

Easy Ordering: Once you have chosen your book, the hard part is done. Just click on the image in the magazine which takes you to directly to the book on our website where you can order it.

Titles You Want: As a valued member of our School Network you can influence the range of titles we offer and showcase in our Student Magazine. If there are particular titles on your own reading lists that you want to ensure your students have access to then just let us know and we will include them in our store.

So how much does it all cost?

The Student Magazine: The magazine is FREE because we appreciate that school resources are limited and you do not want to pay for magazines.

The Discount: To get access to our discounted prices we charge €0.10 per student per edition. By charging in this way, you can be sure that the school’s money is going directly towards subsidising the 10% discount that we pass on to students to ensure they are receiving the benefit.

How do we justify this price? The average price of a book in our store is €10 so a 10% discount represents €1.00. MadRead will therefore be providing a €0.90 discount for each student, with the school paying the remaining €0.10 discount per student.

So for a school with 1,000 students, the Student Magazine would cost €121 per term, see opposite.

Although the fee is calculated based on the number of students, this entitles all students, teachers and parents to discounted books.

Not in the School budget?  No problem.  We understand that budgets are tight so we have an alternative proposal for you.  You still get the Student Magazine for FREE every term, to inspire your students to read more in English and choose from a great selection of the latest titles. There is absolutely no cost to the school or the students.  With this option our books are not discounted, however we always offer a competitive price and FREE delivery.  

What do we ask for in return?

Announcement: The school announces each new edition of the Student Magazine to parents and students.

Distribution: The school distributes the digital magazine to all students and teachers however you decide to do so. We also we ask you to post the digital magazine on your website so that students, parents and teachers can find it easily.

MadRead Liaison: We ask you to designate one member of staff to liaise with MadRead.

School Logo: We ask for your permission to use the school logo on the MadRead website.
