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 in six Glasgow secondary schools throughout their school careers from S1 to S5. The study tracks pupils’ participation in physical activity, including sports, as well as other types of activity (including travel to and from school), during their school time and leisure time, during the week and at the weekend. The research is done by asking pupils to complete the Youth Physical Activity Questionnaire (YPAQ)1 .   A group of S5 pupils were also asked to complete the survey in 2013 in order to provide a benchmark with which to compare the S1 study cohort when they reach S5 in 2017.
