We’re all for some subtle coercion when it comes to keeping children excited for school in September, and there’s no better way to do so than with some well-chosen treats. So with beautiful collections from leading childrenswear brands, the Village makes the perfect day out as you enjoy the last days of summer – and the latest arrivals are bound to encourage.
For some much-needed shopping inspiration, we asked personal shoppers Christina Abbott and Guga Filho – both based at Bicester Village, one of 11 unique shopping destinations within The Bicester Village Shopping Collection – about how to ease the back-to-school blues.
“People always think that when the summer holidays are over, and it’s back to school, that fashion has to end. But there are plenty of things that you can do for your child to keep them excited – you could buy them an amazing brightly coloured satchel that you make bespoke by customising it with a message or their initials. That makes going back to school fun.”

“We’ve had guests enjoy an hour’s shopping with their children on a Saturday morning where they’ve picked out a couple of pieces of childrenswear or some accessories. It gives them something to look forward to wearing at the weekend and can get them through until Friday with a smile on their face.”
