With many schools recently returning after the summer holidays, it’s time to get all the essentials for going back to school. It can be difficult to get everything you need for going back to school and it’s easy to forget even the simplest of essentials. That is why we have put together a list of 10 Back to School essentials to ensure you don’t forget anything!
Firstly, notebooks are one of the most important supplies for back to school. Most schools may provide you with notebooks, however, if you want to do studying at home, a notebook is perfect. In addition, if you go to college or university, you may need multiple notebooks for different classes.
2: Pens and pencils- Back to school
Secondly, pens and pencils are another important back to school supply that you need! It is pretty self explanatory but without a pen or pencil, you won’t get very far in your work/ notetaking! However, you may find that using different coloured pens or pencils help you separate your notes better and make studying easier.
Thirdly, of course you will need a backpack or bag or some kind. However, what some people seem to forget sometimes is to check the size of the backpack. for example, if you need to take a laptop to school, you should always check that the backpack is big enough to fit the laptop in it.
4: Laptops- Back to school
In addition to backpacks, we have laptops. Not all school pupils will need a laptop, however, during COVID and for doing online homework, you may find having a cheap laptop handy. If you are going to college or university, the chances are that you will need a laptop, especially for online classes.
5: Calendar/ Diary
As well as laptops, we have a calendar or a diary. You can use an online calendar if you wish, however, we know some people prefer to have a physically copy of their calendar. Having a calendar or a diary is perfect for keeping track of important deadlines such as reports, homework and exams.

6: Headphones- Back to school
Then, we have headphones/ earphones. You may find that during school time, you have to watch some videos. This is why it is great to have some spare headphones or earphone with you. You can also use them during studying and revision sessions.
Uniform can be easy to forget as there is so many parts to remember. Above all, you should always double check what the uniform is for each year to ensure you get the right kind. Some schools may require you to buy uniform from a certain supplier or have all articles of clothing have the school logo on it. However, if this is not the case, you can get back to school clothes from most supermarkets. Below are a few clothing options that you may need.
- Gym shoes/ kit
- Indoor/ outdoor shoes
- T-shirts/ shirts
- Jumpers/ hoodies
8: Label maker
Another important product you may not have thought about is a label maker. Label makers are great for adding your/ your child’s name to their belongings. This is especially important for things such as pack lunch boxes, jumpers and pencil cases. For example, if you or your child loses their jumper, you can check with the school for a missing jumper with your/ your child’s name on it rather than having to dig through a pile of clothes guess which one is yours.
9: Hand sanitiser and Face Masks
Since we are still affected by COVID, it is important to remember that using PPE and practising regular hand washing and hygiene is very important. That is why we recommend always having a few face masks handy in your bad as well as a bottle of hand sanitiser for when you can’t wash your hands with soap and water.
10: Water bottle
Finally, we have water bottles. Water bottles are perfect for keeping hydrated throughout the school day without having to buy disposable water bottles everyday. This will also help reduce your carbon footprint and is more environmentally friendly!
