Post 16 Students Enter BBC Radio 5 Live Debate

This week, five of our Post 16 students were interviewed by Lesley Ashmall from BBC 5 Live on the same day as MPs are set to debate a petition calling for schools to start at 10:00 because “teenagers are too tired”.

The debate was held on Monday 11th February after more than 179,000 signed the online petition. It reads: “Teenagers are so tired due to having to wake up very early to get to school.

Our Post 16 students spoke eloquently and clearly and presented well argued views on this topic.
