Research output: Book/ReportOther report


In 2013, GoWell East commenced a cohort study of physical activity among secondary school pupils in Glasgow. The study will run from 2013 to 2017, following a group of pupils throughout their school career from S1 to S5.

The research design compares physical activity of pupils in six secondary schools in Glasgow, organised into three pairings: two East End secondary schools; two secondary schools located in other deprived parts of Glasgow; and two secondary schools in more affluent part of the city.

By comparing results across the three groups of schools we can see whether physical activity is different between deprived and affluent schools, and whether there is any additional effect from being located near the main Games site in the East End of the city.

This report presents some of the key findings from the baseline 2013 survey of S1 pupils and presents a comparison of results for boys and girls across four activity areas.
