5 Back to School Essentials For the New Year


Check out our amazing selection of sweaters, shirts and backpacks to start the new year with a fresh new wardrobe.


With the start of each new year comes the promise of new beginnings and a fresh start. With that in mind, there’s nothing that will prepare you better for the new school year than a fresh new wardrobe! Take a look at our amazing new pieces all available right here at Centrepoint. We have everything you’ll need from sweaters to shirts and even some stylish new backpacks





From Pre-School to College, we have an amazing range of backpacks for all ages and styles. We all need a bag to carry our books and belongings from A to B so why not do so in style?! The plain black Sketchers Backpack with Adjustable Shoulder Straps is brilliantly versatile and will go with practically any outfit. Meanwhile, the Sketchers Tropical Print Backpack will give your New Year look a playful yet stylish edge!





Sweaters & Cardigans


As much as we wish the opposite, the weather is likely to be even colder as we head back to school in January. That being said, our amazing range of stylish sweaters and cardigans will make the transition from holidays back to classes considerably more bearable! Wrap yourself up in an eye-catching cardigan like the Iconic Wide Fit Printed Cardigan, or keep it cool with the Bossini Stripe Detail Sweater in dark blue.





Smart Shirts


Smart shirts are an absolute staple when it comes to smart school wear. They’re perfect for pairing with jeans in college or with a smart skirt, trousers or shorts for a uniform. Ensure you’re set for the upcoming school season with our amazing range of smart shirts for toddlers, children and young adults!





Lunch Bags


Back to school means it’s back to packed lunches! This may not be the most exciting prospect after weeks of yummy holiday food, but we know these fun and stylish lunch bags will make it lots more exciting! Just like our clothing and backpacks, we have styles suitable for nursery school all the way up to college!





Water Bottles


No matter the time of year, water bottles are a must as we head back to school. Choose one in the design you love and you’ll not only be staying hydrated but helping the environment with repeated usage too! We have a huge range of character printed water bottles for little ones and chic designs for older children and young adults.
