University Preparation

At Eyemouth High School we work closely with LEAPs to encourage progression into Higher education (HNC, HND, and degree level courses). Input starts in S4 with workshops to introduce what student life is really like. In S5 pupils have further workshops exploring what university has to offer as well as individual interviews before subject choices are made. In S6 pupils have individual interviews and pre-application checks are sent to Universities pupils are considering applying to. For more information go to
