Healthy Schools London

About this activity

Suitable for primary and secondary school pupils.

Healthy Schools London (HSL) is an awards scheme funded by the Mayor of London that supports and recognises school achievements in pupil health and wellbeing.

Like STARS, HSL encourages children to be active on their way to school, increase their daily physical activity and make healthy choices. It supports schools to help pupils learn about their health, and develop their confidence and self-esteem.
