* By using the toggle feature found at the top left corner of the map  you can also see a list if you prefer. You can also download our school’s poster here.

Why do we only work with these schools?

The schools listed are participants in the FOCUS West programme. You can find out more about the work that FOCUS West do here. We deliver programmes that enable pupils from those schools to try out activities, find out about what courses they can apply for, what careers are available and to provide support to pupils and teachers. More schools are being added to the list so please check back for updates.

Is there anything you can do for me if I’m not at a FOCUS West school?
