Pep&Co’s school uniform items are available from 3-4 years to 11-12 years.


Let’s get organised

No new term is complete without new stationery! If your child’s looking for that brand-new-pencil-case feeling, look no further than WHSmith’s amazing range of fun designs, including sequins and fluffy pencil cases. The essential back to school items, from pencils and pencil sharpeners, to erasers and rulers, can also be found in WHSmith Mell Square. Sets of maths equipment are ideal for students who are into more advanced lessons and require items such as a compass and protractor. 

If you’re heading into Pep&Co for school uniform, then why not take a look at Poundland’s range of new stationery? From glitter pens and matching notebooks, to spotty folders and diaries, this range is sure to add fun to any desk whether working from school or at home.


“Is your school bag packed?”

Ensure the kids are looking back to school cool with Argos’ range of backpacks, lunch boxes and bottles. From unicorns to Marvel superheroes, Argos has a range of fun character backpacks to choose from, as well as affordable branded sport bags – ideal for PE kits.

Filled with our favourite sandwiches, crisps or fruit, when it’s lunchtime the lunch box is always a welcome sight. Why not treat your little one to a new lunch box from Argos’ range, which includes insulated ones and those with matching drink bottles? If you’d prefer to opt for a separate water bottle, then Argos has a great choice of bottles including Nike water bottles for the super sporty, to Brita water bottles which ensures the water is as pure as possible.


Top-class outerwear

This new term also signals chillier weather, which calls for top-class outwear to see your child through until winter. From rain macs and duffle coats, to parkers and padded coats, TK Maxx has a range of stylish autumn/winter coats for both girls and boys. With all prices in store up to 60% less, you’ll also discover TK Maxx’s range of stylish footwear, including cushioned soles and leather lining – perfect for all that running around in the playground.


Keeping safe

Plus, they come in both kids and adult sizes, so you can twin with your little person. When in store, why not check out MINI MINI’s amazing book wall, which is sure to spark your child’s imagination and encourage them to read more.
