The closure of schools impacts on young people, families, teachers and university admissions and outreach professionals.  By answering a few short questions about your perceptions, expectations and concerns, you will help us provide quick feedback to policy makers about the implications of the current school closure. More information is available in our Rapid Response Info sheet.
