Back to School - Show Your Locker some Love with the NEW Collection of Stylish Accessories from Locker Days

Students can now say goodbye to lugging around heavy backpacks and hello to stylish personalised lockers which make back to school a little less boring, with the NEW collection of fun, uplifting and empowering accessories from Locker Days.

From positively worded magnets to soft faux fur carpet and interchangeable wallpapers available in a variety of bold and beautiful patterns, Locker Days range allows tweens and teens to pick a print to match their personality as well as brightening up a hard day. The collection can be changed and moved seamlessly, without the drama of marking their locker, and will also include mirrors, pen pots and magazine files which work equally as well in their bedroom or a study space for keeping stationery organised.

The unique one-stop shop is the first of its kind in the UK, and aims to tap into a growing call for lockers in schools. Long seen as part and parcel of U.S. high schools, they are now on the increase in the UK as evidence mounts around the effects lugging heavy books around is having on the health of our youths’ backs.

According to the British Chiropractic Association, a third of parents have reported that their child has suffered from some sort of back or neck pain , a problem which has been widely linked to carrying overloaded backpacks. Research shows that up to 4 million children in the UK are carrying school bags that are too heavy for them and that those carrying the heaviest backpacks have a 50% higher risk of back pain than those carrying the lightest.

Locker Days believes a locker should be a sanctuary, a slice of you, and following a decline in the mental health of girls, it hopes to provide an antidote to a tough day.

The Girl Guides Girls’ Attitude Survey 2018 revealed a 38% decrease in the number of girls aged 11-16 years who felt very happy and a 10% increase in those who actually said they were not happy compared to ten years ago!

The brand will give students a creative outlet for positive self-expression through a unique decorating experience while offering an opportunity to take a moment between classes to revitalise and helping those starting a new school feel at home.

Editors Notes:

Locker Days produce decorative and organisational accessories to make tweens/teens locker spaces their own. From interchangable wallpapers to stylish magnets, the designs are uplifting, empowering and most-of-all, fun. Locker Days believes a school locker should be a sanctuary for its owner, a slice of them, a place to house their favourite things and an antidote to a tough day.

The idea for Locker Days was conceived in 2018 by Buckinghamshire based, mum to three, Becca Cornford. After two years of living in the USA Becca’s daughter (who is very much a part of the business) was stumped when, upon returning to the UK, she was unable to find anything suitable for decorating her school locker. Thus Locker Days was born!
