What is the one piece of advice you wish you could have given your teenage self? We asked the well-loved students from ‘Educating Yorkshire’.

Tom - In Year 10, Tom's behaviour was lively. But it was the unexpected death of his step-brother that pushed his behaviour beyond all limits. Eighteen months on, he explains how he turned his life around.

Robbie-Joe - In Year 7, cheeky chappy Robbie-Joe was in trouble four out of five days. He looks back on his challenging behaviour. Is he now a model student? Has he realised how serious things are for his future?

Hannah and Sheridan - In Year 11, Hannah and Sheridan were among the school's most popular students. But by messing around, the girls struggled to get good grades. Now at college, they need to knuckle down.
