Close to two-thirds of pupils reported that they had received lessons, videos/ DVDs or discussion in class on each of the three substances in the last 12 months.

Overall, receiving lessons on a substance was not correlated with lower levels of use. The exception was 15 year olds who had received a lesson on drugs.

Just over two-thirds of pupils thought that their school was providing them with enough advice and support about smoking, drinking alcohol and taking drugs.
