Teensleep study

EEF funded study, Teensleep, was featured in the BBC, Guardian and Daily Mail.

Evidence suggests that teenagers’ academic attainment is hampered by a lack of sleep and current school start times often force teenagers to wake up and learn whilst their body is still prepared for sleep. Teensleep will test whether later school start times have an effect on attainment.
