We’re here to help get your little explorers classroom-ready. Take a look at our best picks for the new term and browse our range of back to school essentials.

1) Brilliant waterproof jackets

A reliable waterproof jacket is always on top of our list. It’s perfect to keep children warm and dry whatever the weather on school trips, at the playground or at the forest school. It will also stop them from getting wet on a rainy morning on their way to school. A good back to school jacket is super waterproof, lightweight and breathable, but also easy to pack away and put on.

Back To School Essentials

We have lots of options for your little learners. Our new Rainy Day jackets are designed to keep young explorers dry whatever the weather. They have lots of extra room for added layers and are perfectly versatile from early autumn all the way to winter. If you need a waterproof children’s raincoat suitable for more intense outdoor activities, have a look at our brand new technical Storm Hard Shell jacket. It is protective, breathable and features a mesh lining that wicks away moisture and keeps children comfortable and dry without overheating. The jacket is brilliant for layering – pair it with our Cloud Gilet to make it even warmer. To keep young explorers even cosier, we have our super warm and waterproof Explorer Parka jackets with a toasty Sherpa lining which makes this coat perfect for late autumn and cold winter days.
