Probably not really beyond pen and paper. Anything else is really down to what you need/want to use in your studied; don't buy 10 colours of highlighters if you never use highlighters for example!

I bought a lot of stationary but that’s simple because I love stationary shopping. But to keep it basic stick with a green and red pen as they might make you mark stuff, probably a green and pink highlighter because some schools use that to, I’d say a glue stick as passing glue sticks between like 30 kids is long, a ruler, pencil, sharpener and eraser. Oh and regular pens (black specifically)

Don't buy 'project notebooks' with nicely coloured tabs for each subject. You'll fill up those sections at an uneven rate and run out of space very quickly.
Have ONE A4 notebook with tear-out pages, and keep a ring-file for notes/papers for each subject at home to file the notes and any other material you have/find for that subject, in topic order if possible so you can find that stuff later. This takes some organisation - you have to diligent about making sure 'all notes get filed' - and making sure they are readable.

So, buy some simple A4 spiral-bound notebooks with tear-out pages - and some 'comfortable' pens.
Buy other stuff just as you feel you need it.
