Parrs Wood Student Travel Survey


Your school has chosen to join a scheme which will look at the different ways pupils travel to school across Greater Manchester, and how the travel choices that you make are linked to health, the local community and the environment.
To help with this we need to know how you travel to school and what you think about cycling and walking as ways of getting to school.
