Wildgoose is dedicated to the creation and supply of innovative and quality education resources to support and inspire teaching and learning. Since we began trading in 1996, we have supplied products to thousands of satisfied schools and teachers. We are committed to creating new and pioneering products for educational use in the classroom and home, and we have several award-winning products.
With the help of, Bluesky International Ltd, who specialise in aerial photography, we have been able to take advantage of the expertise and knowledge in the company to develop an exclusive range of aerial photographic and mapping products for schools.
As well as Geography, we have expanded into History, RE, Foreign Languages, Music, Science, Computing and Mathematics. We have a small but dedicated staff with a background in education, designing and creating dynamic teaching resources. We are always keen to hear feedback from our customers so that we can serve you better, so please contact us if you have any comments or suggestions, particularly for products you would like to see us add to our range.
Our aim is to supply you with good quality, innovative resources.
We can offer the exclusive site-centred aerial photographic products to every school in England, Wales and some of Scotland. As our aerial photography is continually being updated, this will mean we sometimes have more than one aerial image to offer to you – which can be a teaching tool if your school or local area has undergone dramatic change!
Product availability – we try hard to make sure all of our current products are available for quick delivery, usually within 14 days. If an item you order is out of stock, we will do our best to let you know if there will be a delay before it comes back into stock. The bespoke products created specifically for your school will take a little longer to process for you.

The company started life in February 1996 after a management buyout of an educational arm of the National Remote Sensing Centre, now Airbus, when Wildgoose Publications Ltd was set up by three members of their educational team. At that time, they were focused solely on Geography based products including Maps, Posters, Aerial Photos and Photopacks.
Wildgoose Publications then also embarked on aerial surveys and offered this data alongside their educational work. After growing significantly, and briefly becoming part of Getmapping PLC, the company was bought back in 2003 by some of the original team and Wildgoose Education was set up alongside their new company Bluesky International, who still supply the Aerial Imagery used in the ever popular “Our School” range of resources and are internationally renowned leaders in aerial survey.
Over the years the subject range of resources expanded to include History products and then later RE, Foreign Languages, Early Years, Maths, English and more.
The Wildgoose team has expanded too, allowing many more unique resources to be created including award winning Photopacks, Project packs and Local Area Study Cases. These were sold alongside a selection of Globes, Atlases, Books and other equipment in a Wildgoose Catalogue which was sent to every Primary School in the U.K.
The current owners acquired the company in December 2016 after working for and managing the business for nearly 10 years, continuing the innovative, creative and customer focused ethos that started 23 years ago.
Wildgoose products can now be found in all of the education supplier catalogues and websites, and are sold direct to schools and customers through an online store (www.wildgoose.education), as well as via platforms such as Amazon, TES, etc.
