The summer holidays might be in full swing and it feels like ages before the kids are due back at school but if you are thinking about getting ready for the start of the term, we’ve tried to make life a little easier for you with a list of places to get all the clothing and supplies you need!
Skoolkit, located in Church Street in the town centre or online, stocks all the general schoolwear you need to get kitted out including aprons, PE bags, plimsolls and name tags so you can label everything to hopefully avoid the amount of items lost during the school year. It also stocks school specific clothing for a number of local schools. You can use the handy checker on their website to see if it stocks your kids’ school clothing. Online orders need to be placed by 9 August for delivery before the start of the new school year.
For other general schoolwear items and PE kits there are plenty of options including:
For school shoes, Clarks can be found in Festival Place and sometimes operate a booking system at busy times. Sports Direct located in Festival Place and Deichmann located in The Malls usually have a good selection of school shoes too.
