So, once the basics – shirt, tie, trousers, skirt, jumper – are sorted, that’s when Trespass step in to add an extra bit of class. First of all, you’ll want to start with a good jacket – and we would recommend getting one that’ll be suitable for all the seasons in the year, as we all know that it can go from sunshine to hailstones in the one day. While the kids might only care that it looks cool and stylish, we know that it must be practical and have plenty of options for them. Check them out for great backpacks and school shoes too!

MOBILE PHONES – MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE
Buying a mobile phone for someone starting secondary school is a minefield – and not just financially. Some parents will argue that no child of 11 needs a phone; others that it is essential. And with the vast choice of handsets and deals on offer – from pay as you go to contracts and sim-only – the choice is bewildering – let our teams at O2 and Carphone Warehouse help you navigate the process!
And if an existing phone just needs a smart accessory or repair the guys at Retail Phone Accessories are worth a visit, with a huge range of accessories for phones and tablets as well as being able to sort most faults they have things looking new and have any faults back up and running in no time.
