Pupils have been giving council leaders a grilling as they hosted their own version of BBC's 'Question Time'.
Youngsters at St Christopher's high school were given the chance to put a panel of local councillors under the spotlight by asking them tough questions about a range of topics.
The event was designed to help pupils understand how the borough council works and hear their views on local issues.
Among the topics covered were budget cuts, education, transport, leisure and housing.
The debate was chaired by 2BR and The Bee Radio host Simon Brierley who kept the discussions in order.
Joining the five councillors on stage was 16-year-old Simone Thompson who is a member of the sixth form and school council.
Deputy head Richard Jones said: "It was a really enjoyable occasion which gave us an insight into the Punch and Judy of local politics coupled with a serious side of helping to educate our students."
Councillor Peter Britcliffe said: "I along with rest of the panel really enjoyed hearing the questions raised by the pupils and thinking fast on our feet. They certainly gave us a grilling and it gave us a great insight and opportunity to hear their views and ideas on shaping the future of the Borough."
