Abstract
Research into education and inequalities shows that families’ socio-economic background is one of the factors that has a determinig effect on the achievement of academic results. However, while not denying the influence of external factors, research also highlight the key role the school and school agents can play in more vulnerable young people’s educational pathways and academic achievements. It also finds that schools with similar student profiles display different levels of achievement.This article presents the results of a research project aimed at identifying factors that contribute to academic success in primary and secondary schools located in disadvantaged socio-economic areas in four major cities in Spain (Barcelona, Madrid, Seville and Valencia). This research shows the importance of internal institutional dimensions for academic results and the impact of the educational leadership displayed by school directors and teachers on academic achievement
