Sustainable Travel

Bournemouth School promotes and encourages the use of sustainable travel to and from school.

The most sustainable ways to travel are walking and cycling whilst travelling by bus or train is better than short trips by car.  Studies have also shown that a significant contribution towards childhood fitness and improved health is made by choosing to walk or cycle to school rather than drive.  It is now recognised that encouraging children to eat healthily and be active every day means they have a better chance at being successful in school and a better quality of life in later years.
