Park and stride scheme

We recognise that sometimes students live beyond a reasonable walking distance from their school and it is not always possible to walk the whole distance.

Sometimes even the most regular walkers need to utilise a car for journeys, especially when travelling elsewhere (such as to a friend, relative or club) after school.

If you are faced with this predicament why not try our 'park and stride' scheme - which is simply, parking a short distance away from the school (usually in a designated area) and then walking the rest of the journey.

This provides an ideal opportunity to still get some fresh air, a spot of exercise and increase roadside experience for younger pedestrians. Furthermore it clears busy school roads from the congestion of cars and makes a much nicer safer walking environment for all. Want to give it a go?
