Healthy Schools London

About this activity

Suitable for primary and secondary school pupils.

NB: We’re bringing together all the TfL education programmes, including STARS, under one exciting new umbrella programme called TfL Travel for Life. They will be the same great programmes, but with a new name and a new look, easier online process and dedicated support team. STARS for primary schools will be renamed TfL Explorers. STARS for secondary schools will be renamed TfL Pioneers.

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 TfL Travel for Life, 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.
