I use Appendices. I did research on this years ago and I just remember the conclusion was Appendices. Prior to this research I used Appendixes, which was a red flag for our editor, hence the research :)
When Appendix content is substantial, exceeds 3 pages, I make individual appendices (A, B, ...) . When each piece of Appendix content is 3 pages or less, I consolidate the information in one Appendix (Appendices), using Heading1 to distinguish the main topics. The Appendices and all chapters of my guides contain chapter TOCs to tell the audience what they will find.
Hope that helps!
