This is a very extravagant way of looking into the life of students and how results are effected by early starts, which would resolve a lot of attendance issues, but in the real world of working life you can't just pick and chose your starting hours, you have to be flexible with times and able to adjust.

I don't think that students should start school an extra hour later because if student were bothered about GCSE's and wanted to succeed then they would come out with good GCSE results. If students were bothered then they should go to bed earlier and have their bags ready instead of going to bed at stupid times and should not need to be prompted to get up for school the next day. Another reason why the government shouldn't change when students should go to school an hour later is that it is preparing them for what work will be like, because students wont be able to pick what time to get up for work, so getting up early will benefit students in the future. Students don't need to have an extra hour in bed, if they try their hardest in all of their lessons then they should come out with good GCSE's. The problem nowadays is that students don't concentrate enough, therefore I think that an extra hour wont make a difference. All students need is determination and the strive to do as well as they possibly can.

I think that school should carry on starting at the time it does! Everyone loves a lay in but as Charlie said in the real world you have to get up to get to work for 9 at the latest!! P.S I hope teachers can win the kinder egg!! hehe

The start time makes no difference. It is the energy of the student that defines a lesson. After all our brain releases dopamine [A drug that pushes us to success] and if we can't have a little self persuasion how deep does humanity's failure really go.
Simply put I think that changing the start time would not make a difference to school. It is the pupils attitudes which makes a difference.

I personally believe that students will enjoy waking up an extra hour later because thousands of students across the word are tired and complain about waking up so early to then walk to school no matter what the weather is. EG my brother is a very lazy person and takes more then half an hour just to get out of bed with 5 minutes left to get changed and get out the door. however if we got up an hour later people will have more time to wake up and get ready physically and mentally to get to school after all 'getting a teenager to start their day at 07:00 is like an adult starting theirs at 05:00' in conclusion the school times should be made later because it works and this will be proven in the following year. however this new time table may be a problem for full time working parents as they will have to look after their kids a hour later which might be a problem with their emloyers.
