Just like that we are already looking to making sure the little ones (or even not so little ones) have everything they need for heading back to school in September. 

School uniforms are essential for school but they never seem to last for more than 5 minutes before they are outgrown or have a hole in the knee. M&S have great offers on school uniform with prices starting from £5 per item and covering ages from 2-18 years you will be able to make sure you have everything to help your growing tot last out the year! 

It isn’t just uniform that barely manages to make its way out of first term but shoes too. Clarks have been a long-standing participant in schools’ shoes, offering measuring services and 100s of styles to ensure your little one gets the perfect fit for them and all we can do is hope that they last them as long as possible. 

We all know and remember how important it is to start the new year with a fresh set of stationary, a new bag, lunchbox and matching pencil case and we certainly have a variety of shops that will help your child express who they are and stand out from the crowd. If they want something bright and fun with all the matching accessories try Smiggle, or for quirky notebooks give Paperchase a try. Need something functional or technical with your not so little one heading into those dreaded years of GCSE’s you will be able to find exactly what you need in Ryman or W H Smith. And for everything else why not have a look what you can find in Flying Tiger

Whether this is your child’s first year or their last, we wish them luck and hope to see you at Derbion for all your back-to-school essentials.
