Top 5 School Backpacks

The new school term is fast approaching, which for many means new uniform for the spring term, but have you considered a new school bag? According to ‘Backcare’, the charity researching children’s back health, one quarter of UK secondary school pupils suffer from regular or daily back pain. They associate this problem with ‘school bag burden’ meaning a suitable whilst practical backpack is important for every school child. But don’t go wandering the high streets looking for a school bag just yet; as we have done the hard work for you. We've teamed up with our friends at William Turner’s, the schoolwear accessories specialists, to bring you the ‘Top 5 school backpacks...

1. Infant Backpack

Inspired by the Junior backpack, the Infant Backpack from the ‘Contrast Trim’ range has all the same features but with just one main compartment and is ideal for those first few years at school. Its small rounded shape is perfect for young children and features a handy water bottle pocket (so a little less chance of losing it in the cloakroom). Both the infant and junior backpacks are unique with 10 different colour combinations on offer.

2. Junior Backpack

The practical junior school bag designed to carry everything a child needs for school. The front pocket contains a pen holder and detachable pencil case. Whilst the shoulder straps have an innovative ‘blazer buddy’ lining to avoid piling of a garment. Plus, special rubber feet protectors give added protection. Both the infant and junior backpacks are unique with 10 different colour combinations on offer.

3. Classic Backpack

This bestselling backpack is of a ‘classic’ design and an ideal alternative to expensive branded bags. Features a large front organiser pocket and side mesh pockets. Available in black or navy.

4. Premier Backpack

The Premier backpack is designed to be a stylish yet functional and lightweight backpack. It features a padded lumbar support, MP3 pocket and headphone socket and a fully opening main compartment for easy access. Available in black or navy.

5. Backcare Active Backpack

A bag that helps to protect the back. The Backcare Active Backpack is an ergonomically designed backpack with a patented curved underside which helps spread the load and a lightweight profiled back panel for improved ventilation. The inside of the bag is printed with maximum weight info and carrying advice. For every bag sold by William Turner a contribution goes to BackCare, the charity researching children’s back health. Available in black or navy. All of these bags are suitable for embroidery or printing, an important feature for many schools and colleges, who like their accessories to display their logo and reflect their colours.
