The Best of Back to School

Thursday 31 August 2017, by

After 6 weeks of planning fun and activities for the kids, it’s finally time to pack them back off to school for another year! Here are some of our favourite tips for helping ease the kids back to school:

School backpacks.

What is it with kids and new backpacks? The start of a new year always seems to mark the need for new gear! Send them off in style with a backpack to reflect their personality, whether it be a Nike bag or a Club Penguin rucksack.

An instrument.

Back to school means back to recorder practice, oh we know how much you love that sound. It may even be the year to start them off with a new instrument, perhaps to the classical guitar or the violin?


Extra tuition.

Everyone needs a little extra support sometimes, in particularly if it’s the start of their GCSE year! Extra tuition here and there could be an excellent way to help them through.


The tech.

One for the older teens going back to school, tech. Essays are always made more simple with the help of a laptop or iPad to help.
