Summary Three Glasgow schools reveal their approaches to raising attainment. MSP and former Education Minister, Peter Peacock, explains the rationale behind his Schools of Ambition scheme, which offers extra funding to schools willing to engage in transformative approaches to raising aspirations and achievement. Morag Towndrow, head of Barrhead High School, describes how Schools of Ambition funding has helped to transform the school by enabling them to provide a more tailored and engaging curriculum.At Smithycroft Secondary School, we find out how their focus on tailored support and careers guidance is working, while at St Ninian's High School, the approach is all about inculcating a strong sense of self-belief in the students to help engage them with their education
