don't want to sound like an old man (still in my 20s ffs) but as you get older you care more about functionality than looks and you will definitely find people in sixth form would rather have an ugly old rucksack than a dainty handbag that would be impractical for all of your textbooks and laptops!

I would get a rucksack. You can get some really nice ones and they're a lot stronger than a handbag!

Honestly get a backpack. It will save you so much pain, and so much easier if you need to carry folders in your arms too (I did).

Practicality any day.

I don't know what they're called, but I had one of those fabric bags you get free at events, but a massive one. I found it could fit more in that my old KS3/4 rucksack and was more convenient to get stuff out of. On the other hand, if you walk a long distance you should definitely get a rucksack - those textbooks are heavy and you don't want to hurt your back!

Tbh I would get a rucksack because you need a lot of room for stuff. If you do want to have a handbag then I suggest bringing a tote bag for your textbooks or folders or a laptop

I think so, yes! Like this https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon....KL._UY500_.jpg . I had a normal sized one to start with and it worked ok, but not better than my rucksack before it broke, but I much preferred the large one to my rucksack purely for convenience - I could get all 3 large files and textbooks in, no problem.

Depends how many you carry around/if you have a locker or similar storage facility at your institution. I'd probably recommend a rucksack anyway, I used a messenger bag in 6th form an uni and it definitely was uncomfortable after a while if I was having to carry a lot around, to have it all on one shoulder.

When I started sixth form I started with a handbag however the books are extremely huge so I switched to a backpack and haven’t looked back since

I personally would say handbag if you think your fashionable but want to risk comfort. I find comfort in my big thick rucksack.

Thank you ! I brought a large thick tote bag as I think it will be quite easy to take books and folders out. For some reason I could never fit folders in my rucksack before, its just whether my weak arm can deal with it lol
