Back to School Checklist

Back to School

Checklist

The search for a back to school checklist is over. From polo shirts and blazers to playground-proof shoes and sports kit, ensure you have all that’s needed with our list of school supplies at John Lewis & Partners.

It’s helpful to count how many school uniform items you have that still fit, and stock up on enough new essentials to make your mornings easier. A good rule of thumb is one set in the wash, one in the wardrobe and one already on them.

You can also shop uniform by school and if you’re unsure of their shoe size now, see our handy guide to measuring their feet at home. Don't forget to consider everything their backpack needs too, including stationery, a lunch box and reusable water bottle.
