White, working class boys who succeed in comprehensive education. Extracts from preliminary report. Lesley King and Tom Welch July 2011 Bucking the trend: 9th October 2012 Raising achievement for white boys, of British origin, eligible for free school meals
Of course, on top of caring for the students’ day-to-day educational needs, many of our interviewees outlined how important it was to have a school that offered them a scaffold toward their future.
It was important to all of our interviewees that the school was able to give them in- depth advice, not just in terms of possible further or higher education, but beyond that to five and ten year goals with a series of manageable steps mapped out towards achieving them.
It could not be assumed that the interviewees would have formed their goals through out-of-school explorations; instead, many relied upon their school to discuss potential goals with them prior to mapping out their path to achieving them.
It was clear that all their knowledge about how to reach their goals came from the school itself and the careers service provided by the school.

Vice – Principal to the opening New College Leicester.
