The end of August may still seem far away, but before you know it you’re going to be racing around the shops, trying to remember if your children’s uniform was blue or red.
Planning for back to school is about as fun for parents as it is for kids – trying on school shoes that’ll be outgrown in months, picking up stationery that won’t make it out the pencil case, and of course, sewing name tags into collars in the hope that your child won’t actually lose this jumper (spoiler: they definitely will).
We’ve put together our best Back to School buys from Talbot Green, to help you get a head start on the late August rush. From uniforms to footwear, pencil cases to packed lunch, we’ve got everything you need to get an A+ grade on a B- effort.

School shoes – New Look’s school shoes for boys and girls (now with 15% off)
