Gifted and Talented

Our Gifted and Talented programme identifies students who have superior ability in one or more areas and provides opportunities for them to develop these talents to a higher level.

We have an inclusive definition of giftedness: academic, sporting, culltural and leadership are all significant areas wherein we can develop students' abilities.

Rather than selecting groups of "special" students and accelerating them, we generally prefer an approach which treats each student as an individual.

We recognise student achievement in a variety of ways but we also monitor our most able students to ensure that they do not become over-committed.
