These were clearly not going to be of any good as a group question so it was decided that we needed to combine or link some of the questions to give everyone an opportunity to participate. We eventually decided on the question “Should there be further investment in sports within Plymouth Secondary Education.” We wanted to investigate and show the importance of sport within schools.
