Moray has 45 primary schools and 8 secondary schools and in 2017 Moray Council had responsibility for educating just over 11,900 pupils. In 2016/17 the eight secondary schools produced 928 school leavers. Some 90.7% went on to further or higher education or to gain employment.

There are 3,832 16-19 year olds in the area with 91.2% now participating in education, training or employment.

To meet and then exceed the national average of 91.8%, the Moray Skills Pathway provides a structured pathway for young people from aged 3-18 into employment or further education. This coordinated approach links labour market information, learning pathways and local employers with the provision of careers advice and guidance.
