    I suggest you get an A4 ringbinder folder for each of your subjects and get dividers for each topic you cover

    an academic year diary/planner and a pad of A4 lined paper to write on, pens etc. subject specific equipment like a calculator if you are doing maths or science. Other than that wait until the courses have started and teachers will probably tell you what you will need for their class

    It really depends on what you are studying.

    For geography lots of colouring pencils and a sharpener.
    For maths and sciences a calculator with spare batteries.
    For languages - dictionaries of course.

    Have a pencil case with lots of pens and pencils in. And a suitcase on wheels tha you can move textbooks and folders around the school in.

    I would recommend just taking one ring binder with you to college each day, with file dividers separating your subjects, plastic wallets for loose sheets and a few pieces of lined paper to write notes on in class (rather than taking a whole refill pad). Keep one lever arch file at home, and transfer the work from the ring binder into it when the ring binder gets full. This saves you lugging lot of folders and notebooks around!

    This is what I did when I was in college

    Get large binders/folders for each subject and take them to school so everything stays organised at least that is what i do. Definitely, get a school planner or diary to write down any homework or projects because they expect you to write those down and at my school they don't give you planners in sixth form. Maybe, get a lot of paper refil pads for each subject to write down notes for lessons. Everything else you might need is standard such as highlighters, pens etc.
