Beyond the Boundaries: the impact of Aimhigher in Leeds  This is a research project about the history, development and impact of one Aimhigher programme, Aimhigher Leeds. The textbook produced as part of this work attempted to capture some of the richness, intensity and determination of its workers, co-ordinators and managers’ experiences, as they endeavoured to make sure that the children of one major northern city had all the support, encouragement and resources they needed to aim for their highest possible attainment levels. This research project was funded by Aimhigher Leeds (2009).
