    To be honest, you only need a handbag/medium-sized bag to put your pencil case, phone, etc. in and then you can just put lined paper in your files and carry them separately.

    i do bio, chem, physics and history. none of those bags would have been big, or durable, enough for me. massive textbooks, lots of notes.

    i'm not a fan of any of those to be honest... no offence meant (i'm not exactly the coolest of folk so what do i know...!)

    in sixth form a lot of people didn't even bring big bags
    they carried their folders in their hands and bought a small bag with pens etc in
    that might be the way to go??

    They're all a bit icky, in my opinion. Just get whatever you like the look of best - I only ever carried round my stationary/food/general bits and pieces in my bag, occasionally a pad of paper, but never my folders. I just carried them separately and left the ones I didn't need in my locker, saved a lot of pain on the shoulders..

    The first one is quite nice - BUT it's got tiny handle, are you gonna carry heavy books on just the crook of your arm? :sadface:

    The second one is good, big, cheap, and has the proper handles :yes:

    The thrid would be good for you purposes, but it might rip? it doesn't look to strong and sorry, but I hate leopard print.

    I vote for the second bag

    My college has no locker, the OP's might not either. So I have to carry all my textbooks around, none are lent by the college.

    None of them.. :/

    Have a look at the River Island bags, a LOT of people from my 6th form use bags from there
    I bought one, but it was too pretty to ruin on our dirty school floors :p:

    Just do what everyone else has suggested, carry your folders (I assume you'll have a locker? Just keep everything in there and carry what you need to the lesson, saves a lot of back ache) and have a bag for stuff you need for every lesson. I just had a messenger bag, so much easier.

    No lockers? I'd complain, haha. Seems a bit ridiculous, it would have killed me carrying all my textbooks and folders around. Then again, I carried them to/from college, and live to tell the tale.. ahh still, just carry them with your hands!

    I just had a small tote bag (very similar to this) for pencil case/planner/mobile/keys/other girly essentials and, as someone else suggested, had files which I carried and kept a supply of lined paper in each one. If I needed a textbook I carried it/put it in my bag if it was small enough.

    well it's unlikely you will ever need all of them at once... so shouldn't have to carry all of them at once

    Omgggg, loving them all! Leopard print is so hot btw! But, for school, I think the black one is most durable - can go with anything!

    I had a little ringbinder for each subject, usually just kept the work for whatever module I was doing at the time in there, and past modules in a lever arch file at home. Made it easier to carry them there and back.
