Modeshift STARS







Modeshift STARS is the national schools awards scheme that has been established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel.

The scheme encourages schools across the country to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel in order to improve the health and well-being of children and young people.

Every school in England can participate in Modeshift STARS for free. On completion of an application for Modeshift STARS, schools will automatically have a brand new national standard School Travel Plan.

As of September 2016, 58 organisations representing around 12,000 schools in England are signed up to Modeshift STARS.

Holbrook School for Autism’s residential department has now achieved the Gold Award.
