These Snopake Assorted A4 Zippa-Bags are ideal for storing a variety of stationery and other essential items in for when it comes to sitting down and opening those test papers! The clear flexible plastic bags meet standard exam requirements and the metal zip means your contents stay securely sealed. Provided in blue, red, yellow, green and orange, these bags also feature a write on panel for indexing or writing in personal information, which is great when storing them away at home or in your school locker!
Casio Scientific Calculator in Black
Whether it’s within the exam hall or in the classroom, those maths equations can sometimes be too complex to solve without a little bit of help! The Casio Scientific Calculator is must have addition to your school stationery set, boasting 260 scientific functions and a solar panel which helps to supplement the standard battery so you’ll never be out of power during the moments that matter! No matter if the equation is algebra, trigonometry or any other mathematics problem, this scientific calculator won’t let you down!

And while we’re talking about maths, a comprehensive set of mathematical stationery is what you’ll need for those all-important mathematics lessons! Luckily, this Helix Value Maths Set is perfect for the classroom and beyond, containing an extensive range of mathematical instruments in one neat clear storage case. Included in this set is a clear plastic 15cm ruler, matching 180-degree protractor, 9cm pencil with sharpener and block eraser and a 45 and 60 degree set of squares.

Need some help with keeping your school work and coursework organised during the school term? Then you can’t go wrong with these Q-Connect 2-Ring A4 Binders! With a 25mm paper capacity, you’ll have plenty enough room to keep any upcoming essays or lengthy assignments presented neatly inside! These binders are a great way to stay co-ordinated too, colour co-ordinated that is. Each pack comes with 2 of each of the colours – black, blue, red, green and yellow to bring some style to your paper storage.

For the artist in all of us, having a pack of high quality felt tip pens to hand is essential when it comes creating art and adding bright colour to drawings. These Berol Assorted Broad Fibre Felt Tipped Pens are perfect for drawing and colouring in great detail due to their 1.7mm broad nib and water-based ink! There’s no need to worry about them drying out quickly either as they have an average cap-off life close to 14 days, so they’ll always be ready to use. Variety is certainly the spice of life and the 12 different colours within each pack are sure to delight those who like to experiment with different colours when drawing!
