How can the average State Primary school afford to buy Latin books ?

They can't - but don't despair! The Primary Latin Project is there to help. Schools are encouraged to apply for a grant to help buy a set of books.

We request that schools contribute some of the cost, but many schools have received a 50% grant.

NB The grant fund is also open to Independent Schools.
