Schools Walk the Wight is a great way to encourage children to be active while also supporting their local community. The aim is for each child to walk the same distance as one Walk the Wight (26 miles) by clocking up their miles during every day walking activities.

Children register through their school and registration forms and fundraising packs are sent home in children’s book bags.  The fundraising pack includes a map and stickers to record their miles and a sponsorship form to raise money for Mountbatten. 

Prizes are also up for grabs for children who take up the £20 challenge.
Children can clock up their miles however they choose. All walking counts and for every 1 mile (or 30 minute walk) children can mark this off with a sticker on the map.  

The Schools Walk

All are welcome to take part in the Schools Walk. This is a 4-mile walk that takes place on the same day as Walk the Wight, from HF Holidays in Freshwater Bay to the Needles Landmark Attraction (the same last four miles as the Main walk). Children do not have to take part in the Schools Walk to complete their SWTW map but we would love to see as many people as possible join us on Walk the Wight day.  

To take part in the Schools Walk, please register on the day.
