Winterbourne Junior Girls’ School is proud to announce that we have recently been awarded the Gold Star from Transport for London in relation to their health and wellbeing “Stars Initiative”.

STARS is TfL’s accreditation scheme for London schools and nurseries. STARS inspires young Londoners to travel to school sustainably, actively, responsibly and safely by championing walking, scooting and cycling.
STARS supports pupils’ wellbeing, helps to reduce congestion at the school gates and improve road safety and air quality.


The average journey to school is less than one kilometre, that’s around a 10-minute walk. However, many of these journeys are made by car leading to congestion and an unsafe and polluted environment for us all. By swapping car journeys for active travel, together STARS schools can make a real difference to our city and support the Mayor’s vision for Healthy Streets

On 26th November, a small group of our girls visited their offices to collect the award. Well done to everyone. This is a great achievement!
