Modeshift STARS School Travel Awards


Modeshift STARS is the national schools awards scheme in England 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 January 2016, 53 organisations representing around 10,500 schools in England are signed up to Modeshift STARS.
  • Schools in other areas can join Modeshift STARS for a fee - Modeshift recommend schools first contact their local authority school travel team to see if they are interested in taking part and if not then contact Modeshift direct.
  • Brightkidz is proud to be an official partner of Modeshift STARS.
