A school in Cambridge, England is rewarding students for lying to their teachers.

Pupils attending Perse School are allowed to get away with "minor offences" if they think of a reason on the spot.

Headteacher Ed Elliott explained to Cambridge News: "As head, I like to play my part in creating a quick-thinking, communication-savvy generation by giving students who have committed a minor offence ten seconds to talk their way out of a punishment.

"Many rise admirably to the challenge, and in so doing develop the charm and eloquence needed in the next generation of British entrepreneurs and wealth creators."

Elliott added that the lies must be somewhat convincing and believable to be accepted.

"It's a great lesson in life to talk your way out of a tight corner in a very short period of time," he said.
