CHILDREN across East Lancashire started their school careers this week, whereas for some, it's the beginning of another year down the road.

The Lancashire Telegraph asked readers to send in their pictures of their little ones (and not so little ones) on their way to their seats for learning.

All of the kids look fantastic in their new uniforms, all ready for the first day of nursery, primary school or high school and even moving to a new year group.

Here's a collection of those we received, from youngsters heading to school in Accrington, to kids making their way to class in Darwen.

It's the first day back at school for many children across East Lancashire. To celebrate the milestone, the Lancashire Telegraph is putting together a spread of your loved one's first day at school. Send in your photos and please include your child's name, age and school.
