We offer our personalised student planners in a choice of 3 different sizes to suit a whole range of uses. Our team of experts can help you decide which is the best choice for you.

Our original A5 student planner is the most popular size we offer and offers a good balance between portability and space. A5 planners are a good choice for most schools.

Also very popular is our pocket sized A6 student planner. Like its name suggests, the pocket planner is small enough to fit in a pocket and is a favourite of sixth form and college students.

We also offer a larger format B5 student planner. The B5 planner has more space for content and for diary entries, while still being small enough to easily fit in a book bag or backpack.

Different student planner sizes


Another important consideration for your student academic planners is the choice of binding. We offer 3 different options: spiral bound, toughbind (like a paperback book) and case bind (like a hardback book). Our experts can help you decide which is the best choice for your needs and budget.

Over the years, we have learned exactly what schools tend to require in a student daily planner. We have therefore built up a huge library of content that can be easily added to our bespoke student planners. We’re also continually looking to add further options for schools through partnerships with providers of quality, curriculum relevant content (see our Study Skills and Student Wellbeing sections). One example is our ‘Restart a Heart’ content , designed to give students access to lifesaving first aid information – we can include this free of charge.

You are also free to create you own custom pages using our online design tool. This could be anything you’re your school wellbeing ethos, to uniform regulations – the choice is yours.

At Penstripe, our sole goal is to create the perfect School Planner, Diary or Journal to your requirements. Our expertise is on hand throughout the process to make a potentially stressful job a great deal more straight forward. We’ll support you in determining what options would be suitable for your needs, so you can create the perfect support tool for your students, staff and parents.

That’s where we can help! We’ve researched the best academic planners on Amazon and eBay, in order to aid you in your mission to get organised. Our list of recommendations focuses on planners for the coming academic year, taking into consideration their layout, size, and any extra features that they may have.

How to choose an academic planner in the uk – buying guide.

It can be confusing trying to work out what you need from an academic planner, so let's run through the basic factors you should think about. Follow our tips and you'll easily find one that you can’t live without! 

① Do You Prefer to Organise Yourself by Day, Week, or Month?

Everyone is different when it comes to organisation, with some people prefering to plan months in advance while others like to operate on a day-to-day basis. Many academic planners have more than one layout - for example, weekly planners may also have a page for each month too. In this section, we'll discuss the main layout styles.

A Page a Day Gives You Enough Space for Regular Tasks

A Page a Day Gives You Enough Space for Regular Tasks

Daily academic planners provide space for you to organise yourself hour by hour , with a page per day to lay out all of your plans.

This style of planner is great for those with a lot going on who need to keep track of several tasks at once , or students with procrastination issues who perhaps need to write out a strict schedule. However, it may be too much space for some people, meaning that a lot of paper will be left blank!

Plan Ahead and Keep Track of Appointments With a Weekly Layout

Plan Ahead and Keep Track of Appointments With a Weekly Layout

This type of layout displays your whole week at a glance, so you can see the bigger picture. It's perfect if you like to check your availability for the whole week and pinpoint when your free time is. It's also great for keeping track of recurring events such as chores and appointments.

A Monthly Layout Is Best for Minimal Details

A Monthly Layout Is Best for Minimal Details

A monthly layout is the best option for anyone who prefers to have a general overview of major events or deadlines , rather than filling in their planner with daily tasks. 

As we mentioned before though, some weekly planners also include pages with monthly layouts - so you might prefer to buy a product with a combination of the two!

② When It Comes to Portability and Keeping Organised, Size Is Everything!

When It Comes to Portability and Keeping Organised, Size Is Everything!

If you’re going to be carrying your planner everywhere with you, the last thing you want is a huge, bulky tome that'll weigh down your bag. Buying a heavy planner just makes it more likely that you'll leave it at home - but you're not going to be able to write important study deadlines in it while it’s lying on your desk!

Similarly, if you intend to use your planner to help organise your personal time as well as your academic time, you should make sure it's big enough to fit of all your notes . Cramming lots of writing into a small space because you lack room could in fact cause you more stress and prove to be totally counterproductive!

③ Dated or Undated? Each Style Has Its Benefits

How annoying would it be to buy your dream planner only to find you can’t use it because the dates aren’t what you expected? In this section, we explain how to prevent this from happening by giving you all the info you need about both dated and undated planners.

Dated Planners Are Ready to Use Straight Away

Dated Planners Are Ready to Use Straight Away

An academic planner with the dates already printed requires little effort on your part, and will  usually cover 12-18 months , giving you ample space to input your coursework deadlines and exam dates.

However, you should check the time period before you buy , otherwise the dates might have already passed or they might not start until later in the year - meaning you'll either waste pages at the beginning or you won't be able to use your planner straight away.

Undated Planners Give You More Freedom

Undated Planners Give You More Freedom

Some academic planners don’t have dates printed in them at all , though, which can actually be pretty handy! 

You can fill in the dates on the pages yourself and it doesn’t matter if you're on a break from school or university, as you can simply skip the dates you don't need and pick up where you left off once term starts again! 

④ Extra Features Can Enhance Your Planning Experience

Extra Features Can Enhance Your Planning Experience

Academic planners can come with loads of different features and handy accessories at no extra cost, which makes life so much easier - and more fun! Common extras include bookmarks, pen loops, and pockets for storing things in. 

Some planners also provide stickers to help you personalise each page, making the organisation process enjoyable rather than a chore. Plus, customising your planner can really help you to make a habit of using it - after all, if you invest time in something then you'll naturally want to stick with it.

Weekly & Monthly Planner Image 1

A Premium Planner That'll Increase Your Productivity

This planner by Clever Fox comes in at number 1 - we love the premium feel of it, the wide range of lovely colour options , and the superb paper quality. In addition to 12 months' worth of undated pages, it has dedicated sections for habit tracking and to-do lists.

The emphasis on your long-term life goals is probably our favourite thing about this planner and according to the hundreds of 5-star reviews on Amazon, it's something that a lot of people find useful. If you're unsure where to start, there's also a handy "how to use" guide to help you make the most of your purchase . To put it simply, this product delivers pretty much everything you could ever want from a planner!

Acorbis Undated Weekly Planner - Black

Undated Weekly Planner - Black Image 1

Logically Laid Out and Totally Customisable

This is planner has a luxurious feel, with its soft touch cover and premium quality paper. The days of the week in the weekly spreads are left blank, giving you the freedom to fill them out however you'd like - which is always a bonus if you like to customise your diary! It also has 50 dotted notes pages, providing ample space to write everything down that's on your mind.

Each page of this planner is logically laid out, and it includes brightly coloured stickers that you can use as a visual reminder for key dates. We reckon this product will appeal to organisation newbies and planning pros alike!

Box Clever Academic Diary 2020-2021

Academic Diary 2020-2021 Image 1

Affordable, With a Charming Floral Design

This planner is designed to help you succeed in every aspect of your life. You can input your work deadlines, plan the week's meals, write a shopping list, and know whose birthdays are coming up next month - pretty amazing, right? It's also spiral-bound, meaning it'll stay flat on your desk and won't unexpectedly close itself. 

We think the design of this product is really attractive and fun, and it'll last for 18 whole months before it needs replacing. It's also lightweight and just the right size for popping into your bag . All this for such a reasonable price! 

Rocket A5 Refillable Planner

A5 Refillable Planner   Image 1

Flexible and Can Be Used Year After Year

This planner is a fantastic option if you want something that you can keep using year after year - simply buy some Rocket refills and you're good to go again! It comes with daily and weekly layouts included , plus some refill options also come with pages that show the month at a glance.

The binder is robust enough to last you a long time and the paper is really high quality, feeling much more expensive than its price tag would suggest. Rocket also provides info about how project plans and habit trackers can benefit you . So this planner not only keeps you organised, but actually teaches you how to work smarter, not harder!

Busy B Mid-Year Perfect Planner Diary

Mid-Year Perfect Planner Diary Image 1

Packed With Extra Features to Make Planning Easier

This planner goes above and beyond when it comes to extra features! It has an impressive four storage pockets and tear-out reminder lists to help you keep on track . The stickers included can be used to create visual cues for important dates, and the mini calendar on each page allows for advance planning. 

The faux leather softback cover means that this planner might not hold up as well as a hardback diary when in your bag or out and about, but all of the extras make it worth buying anyway.

Moleskine 18-Month Extra Large Weekly Planner 2020/2021 with Hard Cover

18-Month Extra Large Weekly Planner 2020/2021 with Hard Cover  Image 1

A Top-Quality Product From a Trusted Brand

Moleskine is an extremely popular brand amongst professionals, known for its stylish and robust stationery. Made from top-quality thick paper, this 18-month planner boasts a hardcover and an elastic strap closure to keep it closed when not in use. It's a decent size too, being compact enough to carry around but still providing plenty of space to make notes.

Again, this is most definitely a planner to keep you on track with your work, as it doesn't have room for info about your personal life . If you want a planner with additional sections to track habits or write down your aims, this may not be the best option for you. 

Bright Day Academic Planner

Academic Planner Image 1

Simple but Straightforward

This planner has some great features to help you stay on top of your work - and we love the eyecatching lemon print design too! Sections like the class schedule pages will help you keep track of where you need to be at a certain time. Plus, the weekly page layouts have lots of space for noting down all of your important deadlines as well as your weekend plans.

As this planner is designed for academic use, it lacks space to jot down personal details like your goals or reflections , which can be found in other products on our list. Still, if you want something straightforward and fuss-free, you can't go wrong with this one!

Wordsworth Planner - Weekly & Monthly

Planner - Weekly & Monthly Image 1

Compact and Ready to Use Any Time

This is a really high-quality planner - it comes in a lovely box, wrapped in tissue paper, and includes cute stickers to help you make notes or highlight important dates . It's undated, so you can start using it whenever you want, and it lasts for a whole year but isn't bulky at all. 

Unlike most of the other planners on our list, this one lacks a pocket and a pen loop . While these aren't essential features, we think they'd be useful additions that would enhance an already brilliant product.

Smart Planner Daily Schedule & Weekly Productivity Planner

Daily Schedule & Weekly Productivity Planner Image 1

A Pretty Planner With Plenty of Sections

While this may seem like more of a personal planner than an academic one, there are lots of useful features that will benefit your studying too. The review sections are handy if you like to take time to reflect on the past week in order to plan for the next one. There are also sections dedicated to finances, travel, and birthdays , which will help you to stay organised so you can focus fully on your studies. 

Unfortunately, this planner is let down by the paper quality which isn't good enough to prevent ink from bleeding through to the next page. Plus, the layout is quite structured and doesn't leave any room for personalisation.

Priori Agenda Planner

Agenda Planner Image 1

Stay Focused With This 3-In-1 Diary

The Priori Agenda Planner contains three different layouts, meaning that you can keep track of absolutely everything - from work deadlines to holidays and birthdays. The three bookmarks in different colours allow you to flick between pages really easily and the two pockets are ideal for storing any important loose documents safely in one place. 

Whilst there's room for lots of information in this planner, the pages already have pre-printed sections for you to fill in such as to-do lists, weekly goals, and hourly task slots. The controlled layout may work for some but it may not be flexible enough for others, as there's no way of adapting and personalising it.

Customisation is the key to getting the right planner for your school!

  • Student Planners

After 21 years in the business, we know a thing or two about student planners. We know every school is different. That is why customisation is the key. Working with us will ensure that your students have the best possible tool to plan, work and organise and your school gets the very most out of your investment in your student planners.

You will benefit from working with a highly trained team across sales, design and production, giving you the very best advice on all aspects of your order.

student planners uk

Promotes your Corporate Identity

Allow us to customise your front cover in-line with your school ‘corporate identity’ or pick one of our cover ideas. Include all your vital information, like term dates and uniform policy, keeping students and parents informed.

Visual Benefits

Research suggests we are more likely to remember things if we have written them down by hand. Whilst typing can perhaps be quicker, actually spelling it out with pen and paper helps your brain to retain the information. Your students can highlight or colour code important dates or specific tasks they want to stand out in their planner and update quickly and easier than a online planning system.

Comprehensive Planning Resource

A student planner should be a comprehensive planning resource and not just for recording homework tasks and assignments. Schools that we work with see the benefits of including things such as target setting, progress checking, self evaluation, revision and study regimes. All this in one place so that your students stay on track!


Classic planner.

Our classic student planner is a full colour planner that is suitable for all year groups and key stages. We have updated the design for 2019/20 giving a more fresh and open feel and is available in both A5 and A6 size . You can add all your key school information at the front of the planner, together with target setting, progress checking, subject specific information and anything else your students need to stay on track. Check out our Repository pages for ideas and inspiration.

A budget version of this planner is also available. Please contact us for more information.

Covers & Bespoke

  • Fully customised full colour cover
  • Plastic polypropylene cover to help protect against wear and tear and any spills
  • Robust, tamper proof spiral binding with coil locking

Traffic Light Cards

Traffic light cards are a great way for students to communicate with the teacher. You can also add annotation to the traffic light cards, for example with printed ticks, crosses, smiley faces etc.


Open up another communication channel between student and teacher by incorporating a ‘show me’ whiteboard on the back cover of your student planner.

Plastic Wallets

We can bind a plastic wallet into your pupil diary to provide your students with additional storage space.

Corner Pockets

You can use these as a method of preventing additional notes from falling out of the pupil diary or being lost.

Alternative Cover Printing

Extra customised pages.

Most of our student planners come with 16 customised printed pages. If this is not enough, we can easily incorporate additional pages.

Colour Pages

You can use full colour to enhance your student planners. Make the page stand out so students are drawn to the information.

Coloured Paper

Using coloured paper for your customised pages can help to distinguish between sections.

Page Markers

Page markers help the students mark their place and they can also use the page markers as a ruler and a protractor.
