Gifted & Talented
‘… making a difference’ is our school motto and we work hard to recognise and celebrate the achievements of students in all areas. We have high expectations of all students and encourage them to achieve their very best. Integral to this is creating a learning atmosphere that meets the needs and maximises the potential of our gifted and talented students at school within the classroom or as part of an extra-curricular activity. Where appropriate, there is opportunity for more able students to begin GCSE courses early in years 8 or 9 (stage not age) and this has been particularly successful in PE, Science and Mathematics.
