    OMG You actually need TSR to tell you these things...

    Once upon a time there were two things, one of them was called indepedance, the other was called sense...thought of another thing, it was called DIY

    NB: I have three pens, blue, black red. One ruler/one rubber/one pencil/one highlighter/one calculator. No penicl case as the pens/pencil fit into my pockets... And your done.

    Ah those were the days. I used to love the annual visit to WHSmith for stationary prior to the start of the school year. But seriously, get a pack of biros and you're sorted.

    Is this thread an ironic comment on TSR as a whole or am I missing something? Chill out.

    Wow. Just wow.

    You need a couple of pens. Carrying five round is silly, buy a pack of relatively nice ones and carry two. You won't break two in a day.

    20 pencils? Buy a mechanical pencil, they're a godsend. Never go dull, never need to sharpen them, have a rubber on the end, etc.

    Scissors and glue is insanity. Give me one situation where you might need them, where the teacher won't provide them for you and you can't wait until you get home to glue something in.

    Teachers will moan but your geometry set comes in useful approximately four times in the seven year high school period. They will also probably expect you to forget it.

    Erm, isn't Year 9 when you just continue messing around until a month before SAT's, wait they have scrapped SAT's so just endless fun. I only brought 2 pens in my pocked once I hit Year 9, not the best advice but that's all I really needed (also borrow off someone in class who is always equipped). Save actually considering stationery shopping for year 10 and 11 when GCSE's start, then just buy a scientific calculator and a geometry set.

    Of the seven people who tried to use stationery before you, only one used the right word. I can't believe they were all typos.

    Year 9 ?

    Simpler times, nothing matters in year 9. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    Year 9 doesn't matter in the slightest, especially now they've got rid of SATs, so there's really no point fretting over such trivial matters (how exactly do you think your stationary needs will differ significantly from the last two similarly pointless years?)
    I want to try and make a good impression so I can get what I want for my Options - plus I start my GCSE's this year (Maths and PE)

    Yesm, years 7,8 and 9 are just the best years you will ever have at school. They mean nothing... Dont worry about stationary and enjoy it cos once year 11 comes around, the pressure HITS YOU LIKE A BRICK WALL... (well it did with me anyway)

    Hi Guys/Gals

    TBH - Last year I needed more than my school asked.

    So what should I (being realistic) bring for my next school year?

    NB: I have already got the following:

    * 5 Blue Pens
    * 4 Highlighters
    * 20 Pencils
    * Geometry Set
    * Pencil Case

    Thanks,

    Simon
    So harsh you have to bring in all that, I literally don't bring in a thing to school, have one or two pens about, and borrow or find the rest, Calculator might be needed, that is a about it?

    Also, I don't get detentions.

    You need the following:

    pen (I like uni-ball eye fine black) x2
    mechanical pencil with rubber end x2
    ruler
    scientific calculator
    pencil case

    Any extra stationery like protractors, colouring pencils and highlighters you can buy on a need-to-use basis.
