Glasgow

Description

Take a look at the different ways in which three schools in Glasgow are attempting to raise attainment levels.

Former education minister Peter Peacock MSP explains the rationale behind his radical Schools of Ambition scheme. Reflecting on the impact of the programme, he also shares his hopes for its future.

Morag Towndrow, headteacher at Barrhead High School, describes how Schools of Ambition funding has helped to transform her school by enabling them to provide a more tailored and engaging curriculum.

David Cummings talks of how he is raising attainment at Smithcroft Secondary School; a school that missed out on the scheme. Meanwhile, St Ninian's High School's vibrant Reach for the Stars ceremony is being used to cultivate a strong belief in education amongst pupils.
