Store Hours: Open daily during the school year from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
Hornet's Nest School Store
Located in the Beekley Gym Lobby, the Hornet’s Nest opens the day before the first day of classes and is open every school day from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. A satellite store, located in the Lower School, is open on Tuesdays from 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The store is run by parent volunteers. Please call the Bookstore Manager if you would like to help.
At the beginning of the school year, parents establish drawing accounts for the purchase of school supplies from the store. Standard accounts for Lower School students are $25 and $40 for Middle and Upper Schoolers. Accounts may be supplemented as needed. Other Tatnall items (clothing, spirit items) may be purchased with cash or check. Stores are closed during vacations.
The Tatnall Upper School has contracted a third-party bookstore, BNC K–12, to supply books. Each student will receive emails from BNC K-12 about purchasing and returning books.
The first email contains instructions on how to purchase books for the year. When it is time to sell books back to BNC K-12 at the end of the year, another email will be sent to each student explaining the process. To help facilitate this process, BNC K-12 issues each student a unique BNC K-12 Student Id; using this Id number, you can shop by schedule.
