A school in England will soon use a 1.30 to 7pm timetable so students can sleep in the mornings. The school will be the only one in Britain to do this. The head teacher said the new hours should help students get higher grades. He said research shows that student productivity increases if they can sleep in the mornings. He added: "We want to get students into an environment where they can get quality sleep and their bodies are functioning well."

Oxford University researcher Dr Paul Kelley said an alarm clock doesn't help people work better. He said: "You can't train your system to get up at a practical time." He said people become ill if they try and change their body's natural, biological rhythm because they have no control over things like their heartbeat. A student at the school liked the idea. He said students are tired all day, "but as soon as 10 o'clock hits, that's when we…do all our work".
