Abstract/Summary This chapter reports on findings from the Scottish Independent Schools Proj ect (SISP), a project developed to complement a range of other case studies supported by the Schools and Social Capital Network of the Applied Educational R esearch Scheme (AERS), which focused largely on 'disadvantaged ' groups or communities. SISP, in contrast, sought to explore how social and other capitals work in and through the spatia-temporalities (Sassen , 2001, Guhon and Symes, 2007) of a ·more privileged setting - that of independent schooling in Scotland. T he assumption here was that there is a relationship between the (re) production uf advantage and disadvantage and that bonding social capital on a global scale is a feature of contemporary processes of the production of advantage. Succinctly, the research was predicated on the assumption that understanding the production of advantage would also provide insights into the reproduction of disadvantage and the policies and practices required to address it.
