Kathryn and Amelia from Ardingly College looked at the first part of this question. They say:The most popular way of primary school pupils getting to school is by car. Secondary pupils prefer the bus. These may be different beacause a young child is not as responsible as a secondary child. Older children will probably want to be around their friends more, so will prefer to take the bus.
Thank you, Kathryn and Amelia. Dhienell, who goes to Sion Manning Secondary Girls School, suggests that one of these other forms of transport could be a taxi. Perhaps you could suggest other reasons why walking is the most popular way of travelling to school overall?
Tristan and Emily from St James' School add:In secondary school you usually travel around on your own where as in primary schools you usually aren't aloud to travel to school on your own.
Unfortunately, you haven't sent us the results of any surveys that you have carried out yourselves. We would love to hear about them if you do and to see how they compare with the data on Census at School.
