Back to School 10 Best: school bags
Gone are the days when a Head sports bag was the school tote of choice (showing my age here). Nowadays, there is a huge range of options available, from the traditional leather satchel (with a contemporary update, natch) to an animal backpack. If you’re school shopping this weekend, don’t forget to check out our other back to school round-ups for lunchboxes, water bottles, shoes and pencil cases.
