The Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education (MBSSE) is interested in identifying suitable school catchment areas across Sierra Leone and publishing a companion strategy for school development.

To that end, this report outlines the findings from a preliminary school mapping and coverage analysis whose aim is to provide insights into existing school coverage using the population estimates created jointly by Statistics Sierra Leone and GRID3 (WorldPop and Statistics Sierra Leone, 2020) and the existing school locations from the 2019 Annual School Census (MBSSE, 2019).
