GET THEM READY:
THE BEST SCHOOL BAGS

From printed primary school backpacks to perfectly practical lunch boxes, we have the school bags to suit

School backpacks with style

When it comes to the annual back-to-school countdown, a fresh bag is certainly up there with shiny new shoes and a pristine pencil case in terms of must-haves. M&S backpacks are a great place to start. They’re made from water-repellent fabric, so a rain shower won’t mean soggy books, and have adjustable padded straps for comfort. Choose from a range of prints to suit every child’s taste.

Pick the perfect lunch box

While we’ll never stop pining for our Nineties Forever Friends lunch box, it has to be said that the modern iteration is way more practical (and still very sweet). As well as fun printed designs, M&S lunch boxes feature Thinsulate™ technology to keep food cool, plus a handy side pocket for drinks storage. They’re designed with a seamless lining that is quick to clean, and are machine washable for those really stubborn stains.

Bags perfect for nursery

They may be small but, as any parent will tell you, toddlers and pre-schoolers come with a surprising amount of baggage. Sleeping bags, spare clothes, dummies and sun cream can all be packed off to nursery with them in a cute printed bag. Whether they’re into dinosaurs or Disney princesses, we have the one for you.
