    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.
    I brought a pack of 20 pencils from Sainsburys - they were the cheapest they had.

    You need a sationary list for year 9. Seriously, you know what you need, you don't need to ask a student forum. Same as last year there is no difference. Pens, pencil, ruler, rubber and sharpner.

    Seriously people should stop worrying its year 9 FFS! You don't need to start worrying about things to A levels...

    My goodness this is crazy! For year 9-13 I had a Biro in my pocket and it was plenty. And I could always find a pencil, calculator etc lying around the house for the A levels that needed them, but if thats not the case in your house I would get those too for any SATs/GCSEs/A-levels you have.

    If your school gives you detention for not having certain items, by all means bring those certain items, but I wouldn't go above and beyond them.

    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)
    Believe it or not, but neither of those depends on what stationary you bring

    Is this serious?

    14 biros [£1]
    8 HB pencils [£1]
    1 pencil case [35p]
    1 geometry set [£1]
    2 spare erasers [26p]
    1 calculator [£7]
    1 pack of 10 colouring pencils [15p]
    1 pack of 10 fibre tip colour pens [23p]
    1 pack of 10 artist pencils [£1]

    That comes to £11.99; take £1 for 4for£3 offer - £10.99. ASDA.

    Without the calculator, £4 for the lot.

    It's Year 9; you probably won't even need the artists pencils or felt tips.

    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

    Its not that hard is it? Just bring bloody pen to school and u'll be fine.

    If I want to walk for an hour up and an hour back then I might walk - and what is the point in free home delivery?

    What's the point in free home delivery? You don't spend time walking or cycling there and back, and you don't pay for the bus, train or petrol in the car to get you there.

    Have I spelt it right?
    No. Perhaps you should add a pocket dictionary to your list?

    Make sure they are pens you like to writw with, buying crappy biros is a false economy.
