Our Schools

We currently work with state secondary schools throughout South East Scotland, which we divide into our Group 1+ schools, our Group 1 schools and our Group 2 schools. Please see below for more information. The school groupings below will next be reviewed in the summer of 2021.

LEAPS Group 1+ Schools

Schools in Group 1+ typically have rates of progression to higher education that are some way below the national average. For this reason, these schools are normally entitled to participate in all aspects of the LEAPS programme, from S3 to S6, as well as some bespoke activities.
