On This Page: Legacy, Geo-Statistical ("Instant") Atlases of Key Results for every authority that has ever commissioned the STHC. The atlases use InstantAtlas software and were the first STHC analysis output that was accessible online.

This page contains an interactive geo-statistical atlas showing all the results for all schools for years of STHC analysis, though you can only view one data field data a time. To view a particular data field, click on the "Change Data" button and select the analysis data and the year you wish to look at. The map and surrounding charts will then update automatically.-

This page contains our legacy, Geo-Statistical ("Instant") Atlases for every authority that has ever commissioned the STHC. The atlases use InstantAtlas software and were the first STHC analysis output that was accessible online (via the headerbar of the old STHC website).

Our Geo-Statistical Key Results Atlases enable like-for-like , side-by-side comparison of the pupil usual mode of travel data collected by schools (it was still part of the national school census at this time), and our key STHC analysis results in an interactive, map-enabled, log-on, password and plug-in free environment through any browser. There is:-

  • one "All STHC Authorities" atlas containing authority-level analysis results for all STHC Client Authorities
  • separate school-level atlases for each authority.

The atlases are now incorporated into an authorities STHC Data Portal if they are still part of the 'STHC Club'. For authorities that have not re-commissioned the STHC (mostly due to the end of central government funding under the Travelling To School Initiative (TTSI) programme and / or DfE decision to unilaterally stop collecting Pupil Usual Mode Of Travel as part of the National School Census in 2011 we might add), we have decided to keep your atlases up on this new website as a continuing resource for you to use.
[Note: Of course authorities don't need to collect pupil usual mode of travel data anymore to benefit from the STHC output. Find out more about the Data Portal... ].


1. As we do not have data for all 30 STHC authorities for all years you may need to switch between years to see data for the authority you are interested in.

2. For the individual authority school-level atlases, you can view the latest STHC Report we haave on record for each school by clicking on the notes icon beside the school name in the Data table on the right hand side.

3. The atlases shown here were built using the Adobe Flash version of the Instant Atlas software, whilst the ones incorporated in the new STHC Data Portals are the HTML version. The analysis data they show is the same but there are differences in features and functionality between the Adobe Flash and HTML versions of Instant Atlas:-

  • the flash version is Windows only so will not work on Macs or mobile devices.
  • the map window in the flash version contains map tiles held on our server and created specifically for our Instant Atlases. The HTML version uses a streaming Google Map window, with all the usual features of that.
  • each screen component in the HTML version can be expanded to fill the screen (click on the arrow in the top right corner) to enable tits contents to be seen more easily.
The walk-through video at the top of this page should still give you all the information you need to know about how the atlases here work.

Since the STHC service began in 2005, we have processed:-

3.3 m

individual pupil data records


separate UK schools


of schools in England

We think the STHC gives unparalleled insight and represents outstanding value for money:-

£0.15 - £0.22

average cost per pupil for Standard Output and School Packs (depending on school set up within an authority)

We are however constantly striving to improve and expand it. Please contact us if you have any feedback / suggestions.
