Let’s Get Back to School!

2020 has been quite the rollercoaster, and our kids haven’t had the easiest of rides! But September is now in reaching distance, and with it comes a new term, a new school year, and a new ‘normal’.

Starting school can be an anxious time for our little ones at the best of times.  If there’s one thing we know, it’s that having a fresh new pencil case, bag or uniform will give them the confidence to get back to it with gusto!

Our stores here at The Spires Barnet have all the essentials you need to get ‘back to school-ready’, and we’ve picked out our top items to help make things a bit easier for you.
