Ready or not, here comes the new school year.

With August in full swing and September just around the corner, the Back to School shopping list is probably already piling up. Now is the perfect time to make sure your children are classroom ready.

Head down to Frenchgate where there is plenty of choice to fulfil your needs, the kids will not be disappointed!

The fun, colourful, family-favourite brand, Smiggle, has got an incredible Back to School range. The Déjà Vu Double Decker Lunchbox comes in a variety of quirky patterns and exciting colours or the Shimmy Unicorn Scented Alphabet Keyring will make any backpack sparkle. Renowned for their fun and bold stationery, children will love the unusual Explore Combo Ruler Stationery Set.

JD Sports and Sports Direct cater perfectly for those energetic personalities who are eager to burn off some fuel, kick around a football or run the 400 metres. The adidas Originals Lock Up Backpack is fashionable, reliable and will have kids sprinting from the classroom to the school field. Alternatively, check out the lightweight Nike Heritage Gymsack, great for those days when PE is on the timetable.

A reusable water bottle helps the planet, provides affordability and gives you peace of mind that your child is staying hydrated throughout the day. Claire’s sell the stylish Mint Rainbow Unicorn Water Bottle, the fun bottle includes holographic glitter unicorns and a twist straw. For a more fruity option, WHSmith can quench your kids thirst with the Lime Green Hydrate Fruit Infuser Water Bottle.  

It’s the simple things in life, but for children there is no better feeling in the summer holidays than the annual ritual of choosing stationery for a new school year. Girls will be in their element with the colourful, vibrant, Queen of Awesome Handy Case or to sweeten up their pencil case, the Swizzels Novelty Erasers are the perfect stationery accessory, both from The Works.  

Let your kids’ personality shine through from head to toe with a pair of Debenhams school shoes. The Girl’s Black Patent Mary Jane Shoes are sophisticated yet great for all that running around the playground, or if your children are already dreading the end of summer, warm up those chilly autumn mornings with a Boy’s Black Padded Coat from the Debenhams Hype range.  

For those who are about to undertake their GCSE’s, make sure they are fully equipped with the Black Scientific Calculator and Technical Compass from WHSmith or check out the Treasured A4 Wiro Notebook from Wilko which is great for revision notes.
