On Thursday 21st April 2005, Sky News came all the way to Rossendale to interview BRGS sixth-form students and staff about their feelings on the forthcoming General Election and current political issues!

This was for two reasons: within the Rossendale and Darwen constituency, there is only a marginal difference between Labour and Conservative votes, and the BRGS sixth form is the largest sixth form in the area!
