Gifted & Talented
As a caring community school we seek to meet the needs of pupils of all abilities through a wide range of well thought-out learning strategies and opportunities. Gifted pupils are encouraged to maximise their academic potential through experiences that are both challenging and varied, incorporating higher-order thinking skills and creative forms of differentiation. Similarly, pupils who are talented in the arts, art, music, drama and sports, for example, are given opportunities to develop their expertise to the full.
After-school activities are many and varied. For example, we seek to broaden the curriculum by offering enrichment classes in certain subjects that cannot be accommodated in normal curriculum time. In addition to these extra classes opportunities are provided for pupils to take advantage of sessions on a wide variety of topics. These are offered at our school, at our colleges and our Universities. Aim High Days and Study Skill Days are just a two examples. We welcome links with our local business community, which generously provides opportunities to broaden pupils’ experiences.
As a consequence of these actions we have, for example, won the Boys U16 National football cup in 2011 (second National Football Cup win in 5 years) and 47% of pupils in 2012 achieved 3 or more A*-A grades.
