Back to School: Essentials

Posted on Friday, 2nd September, 2016

It’s that time of year again! With the kids going back to school there is plenty to get organised to make sure that they have everything that they need for the new year ahead.

With this in mind, we’ve given you a run down of places to find all the essentials you require to make sure they are prepared.


One thing every child needs to learn is decent stationery! Make sure they have all the pencils, pens, rulers and protractors that they need - not to mention a pencil case to carry it all in!

Bury St Edmunds has a wide variety of shops to cater for your every stationery need! Click here to see them all.


Probably the thing kids are best at doing is growing... quickly! If yours have already grown out of last year’s uniform, make your way over to Aubyn Davies.

With so many years of experience, they are your go-to for school uniforms in Bury St Edmunds. Click here for more info.

PE Kit

Have you been frantically searching through cupboards to try and find your son or daughter’s PE kit, only to realise that it has inevitably become part of last year’s lost property?

Never fear, get them properly kitted out at one of these fantastic sports shops in Bury St Edmunds. Just remember to sew their names in this time!

Intersport | JD Sports | Sports Direct


So, the kids are looking smart in their new uniforms and have all of their brand new stationery and exercise books laid out ready for their first day back, then you find out that their backpack has a tear in it!

Don’t panic, one of these outdoor suppliers will have just the thing you’re looking for!

Blacks | Cotswold Outdoor | Mountain Warehouse | Animal | Revel Outdoors
