Kingfisher’s back-to-school guide

Get ready for the new term

The summer holidays are flying by and after enjoying all of the time off with the kids, getting them back in education mode can seem like no easy feat!

If you’re on the lookout for some preparation pointers ahead of the new term, be sure to read on – we’ve put together our ultimate school shopping guide for a lesson in stress-free shopping ahead of this September.

In need of some uniform staples? If the kids need a uniform refresh, be sure to head down to Primark for a great choice of basics that won’t break the bank, or visit Next where you’ll find a range of dresses, polos, jumpers and trousers perfect for the new term.

Scoping out new school shoes can be an intimidating task for any parent, but not with all of the fabulous retailers we have on our doorstep here at Kingfisher. Humphries, Deichmann and Shoe Zone offer a huge range of school shoe options with plenty of designs suitable for every child, and you’re guaranteed to find some stylish bargains at TK Maxx.

Accessories can be key for the new school term, and are often the perfect way for the kids to make a subtle style statement without breaking the uniform rules. Claire’s has all of the fun and unique school essentials you could dream of with gadgets such as collapsible water bottles, and an enormous range of funky key rings. Sports Direct is a great place to discover trending brands such as Under Armour, No Fear and Hot Tuna – the ideal spot for grabbing a new backpack that will last for the year ahead.

And last, but perhaps the most exciting part of the back-to-school preparation, the stationery shop! We have a brilliant array of go-to stationery options here in the centre, with retailers such as Smiggle offering super on-trend pieces to add to your pencil cases, or head to WH Smith for that new-book feeling with their choice of beautifully designed planners, notebooks and diaries.

We have everything you need for the new school term here at Kingfisher, so if you’re planning your back-to-school shop now, be sure to visit our store list to see all of the retailers we have on offer.
