School Reporters from Sirius Academy were among those students invited to a Young Person's Question Time with the Education Select Committee staged at their school.

The teenagers were invited to raise their concerns and issues with MPs directly involved in making changes in the education field. One of the many points of debate was the hours spent at school after England Education Secretary Michael Gove's proposal to lengthen the school day.
