You could always cycle to school if you live less than about 15km away

Mm... it might not feel like it, but you most definitely have time for exercise. It's all about finding a balance. I walked the 4.7km home from school everyday (by necessity, not choice) and played basketball twice a week.

A lot of people seem to jump to "oh, but it's too far".
If you can walk to school within an hour (~5km), then that's walking distance.
If you can cycle there within an hour (~15km), then that's cycling distance.

take advantage of your recess and lunch time,
40 mins of basketball is what i did a day and it was sure more than enough :p

Another tip: grab a book, hop on the treadmill on a steady slow pace and read away :D

holy! everyone seems like they play bball here :D
i find that high intensity basketball with friends has better results than running for the same period of time, simply because of the pace change and involvement involved, i guess

Alternatively, there are less insane versions that don't try to kill you :P
For cardio, I pump out a 25min HIIT session on the exercise bike a couple of days a week.
