Can you believe It’s that time of year again….. everyone is getting ready for the start of the school term – whether that be the little ones on their first day, moving on up to secondary school or even the big jump to college or university. There are some essential items you need to think about when getting ready for the new term, so we have searched Overgate to give you inspiration and some key products.


Primary School Ready

One of the essential times at primary school is, of course, lunchtime. You get to make new friends, learn new games and swap items from your lunchbox (I’ll swap you my apple for a Penguin biscuit!!). Smiggle in Overgate have some great lunch items that are sure to put a smile on your child’s face and make them look on trend.

Secondary School Cool

Secondary school can be a daunting time: you’re introduced to algebra, foreign languages and Shakespeare’s sonnets (which can feel like another foreign language!). Tiger and Paperchase have the stationery you need to help you through this journey – and in the right budget band. From collections such as Purr Maids, Monsterosity, California Dreaming and Wolf Gang, you will be spoiled for choice.

My Choice Education

College is an exciting time when you get to choose all your own subjects, and can lead on to university. Things become much more independent and for this we have chosen a few items that became essential through our college and uni days. There is something about those teen to adult years that make it hard to get up early, so a flask for a much-needed coffee is a necessity. They are so many choices now compared to the plain silver flask that used to be the only option; you can use them as your very own fashion accessory.

Laptops have also become an item that students take everywhere, so a nice laptop case to keep it safe from scratches is a real must-have. Earphones are also a good idea to help block out all the chatter in study breaks so you can crack on with your work. Stormfront in Overgate have a great range of accessories that will come in handy at all times. Or if you feel like really treating yourself, why not look in to purchasing a MacBook. Finally, a pen is always useful to have floating in the bottom of your bag; even though everything is mainly electronic nowadays you never know when you will need one.
