1. Clever uniform solutions

Savvy parents look for high performance, easy maintenance staples and our brands have some ingenious solutions. We give an A+ for easy iron shirts, stay white technology, permanent pleats, Teflon stain resistant fabrics, reinforced seams and adjustable waists. Head to John Lewis, M&S, Selfridges, Clarks, Debenhams and Next at intu Trafford Centre and ASDA for all the gear.

2. If the shoe fits

Another term, another shoe size! However many pairs they get through it’s vital to make sure you get the right fit and there are professionally trained experts on hand to help in John Lewis, M&S and Clarks at intu Trafford Centre.

3. Stationery, pencils and bags...oh my

Who doesn’t love starting a new term with a brand new pencil case? At TraffordCity you’ll find everything you need to fill those backpacks, from academic year diaries and notepads to pens and study guides. High street favourite WHSmith at intu Trafford Centre is packed with budget-friendly goodies and you’ll find some stylish stationery at Typo, Waterstones and Paperchase in Selfridges. Plus, there’s an ever popular Smiggle store with its colourful collections.

4.     Kit them out for sporting success

Gone are the days of running the whitener over an old pair of plimsolls at the start of the term, school sport is a serious business now. Whether they’re budding footballers, athletes, cricketers, rugby players, tennis players, golfers or swimmers you’ll find everything you need to kit them out with Footlocker and JD at intu Trafford Centre, American Golf at Trafford Golf Centre and Sports Direct at Trafford Retail Park.

If you’re planning any extra curricular coaching head to David Lloyd Clubs  and Trafford Golf Centre who offer kids camps and coaching throughout the year.

5.     Make it a fun day out!

Let’s face it kids (and parents) can get a little weary after a day shopping for school kit, so we say make a day of it and treat yourselves to a delicious meal, take in a movie or let off some steam with indoor skiing, high ropes treetop adventures or indoor sky diving.

Finally (and with looming school projects in mind) head down to SEA LIFE at intu Trafford Centre for some fun and educational underwater adventures.
