Increase walking, cycling and scooting at your school with Sustrans Big Shift, a free-to-access online challenge to motivate the school community to travel more actively.
- Open to all schools in the UK
- Free of charge
- Available all year round – schools can choose any five days to take the challenge
- As well as a whole school, individual classes and year groups can take part
- Option for schools to repeat the challenge to improve on their achievements
The challenge sets schools individual targets, based on how pupils currently travel - helping them make a Small Step, Big Stride or Giant Leap in how pupils make the school journey.

We recommend you take a look at ‘Increasing active travel to school – a six-week step-by-step guide’, which contains a suggested programme and top tips for events, activities and lessons to inspire more journeys by foot, bike or scooter.
Our new online school shop also offers a selection of products to help promote active and sustainable travel. This is available to be used by individual schools, groups of schools and local authorities for bulk purchases.
