What is LEAPS? Presentation for Parents & Carers

Please click here to find our What is LEAPS? Presentation for parents and carers of LEAPS-eligible students.

The presentation explains more about LEAPS including who we are, what we do, and the support LEAPS offers to LEAPS-eligible students who are aiming for higher education.

We would usually deliver this presentation in person at school parents’ evenings, but as we are currently working remotely due to Covid-19 we created a recording which can be viewed at any time.
