Oxley College is pleased to announce that Box of Books, an Australian company and a world leader in the provision of education resources, is the College’s textbook provider.

Box of Books will provide parents and carers with the option of eBooks or paper texts via one single, seamlessly delivered and simple to use platform. If you choose to purchase physical books, they are bundled with the eBook and shipped to your home address. Delivery can be tracked through your Box of Books account.

You should only order books for your student’s enrolled subjects. The English novels are available in paper format only.

English novels and videos must be individually purchased for each enrolled English course.
Rather than mandate a single supplier, we recommend families use their own choice of a local bookshop or online supplier. Sites such as http://booko.com.au list the lowest prices from a range of sites.
Please find below the full list of 2021 HSC English text requirements, organised by course.

Let either Mrs Antoniak or Mr Chambers know if you have difficulty purchasing any of these texts.
