Find all your back to school buys at intu Watford

Where can you stock up on education essentials?

As the summer holidays start to come to an end, it’s time to start thinking about back to school shopping.

Following months of school closures and home-schooling taking place across many households, parents are now preparing for their children to return to the classroom in September, starting with the annual task of shopping for back to school basics – and intu Watford has got it covered with a range of school clothing, lunchware and stationary.

With social distancing and safety measures firmly in place at the shopping destination to keep everyone safe and well when they visit, mums and dads can find school uniforms at Marks & Spencer and H&M, school shoes at Clarks, schuh and Deichmann, and P.E. kits and sports shoes at JD Sports, Office, Sports Direct and Sole Trader.

A range of books and school stationery to put a smile on their faces can be found at Disney, Paperchase, Primark, Smiggle, Flying Tiger, Typo, WHSmith and The Works.

Pupils will be in safe hands when they return to learning, due to the new safety and social distancing measures that are in place, however parents can also pick up hand sanitisers and face masks at Boots and Superdrug, for those who travel to school via public transport.

Parents are encouraged to check with the school directly for the latest advice, as regulations on what items can be brought onto the premises may vary.
