Growing up in Wales - school students' perspectives and experiences - postcard 1 - ENG

We’ve gathered young people’s views on their teachers, school trips, why they’ve been asked to leave the classroom and why they’ve been given a detention. We also asked about the GCSE subjects they’ve chosen and their awareness of vocational education.

We’ve also asked them about growing up in Wales more generally, including their awareness of and engagement with the Welsh Youth Parliament, their views and experiences of money and gambling, ‘technoference’ and how they spend their time outside of school.
