The Baillie Gifford Schools Programme 2022
Join us in-person or remotely from your classroom for a packed programme of events created specially for schools this 22-30 August. All Schools events are free to view, and you can take part by attending in-person, watching live online, or catching up at a time that works for you.
Thanks to Lead Sponsor Baillie Gifford, every pupil attending the Baillie Gifford Schools Programme in-person this year will receive a free book related to the event they come and see and there are opportunities for students to get their book signed by authors in the Signing Tent.
For schools watching events online, pupils can ask authors questions using the online Q&A function and we’re running a competition - exclusively for schools taking part online - to win a fantastic set of books by authors in this year’s programme.
Schools can save 25% off book orders by entering the discount code found in the 2022 Baillie Gifford Schools Programme. The offer applies to all books featured in the Baillie Gifford Schools Programme and Baillie Gifford Children’s Programme and is valid until 30 September 2022.
