Gifted & Talented

"If you want to build high, dig deeper"

'Gifted and talented' describes children and young people with an ability to develop to a level significantly ahead of their year group or with the potential to develop those abilities:

  •  'gifted' learners are those who have abilities in one or more academic subjects such as Maths and English
  •  'talented' learners are those who have practical skills in areas like sport, music, design or creative and performing arts

Skills-like leadership, decision-making and organisation are also taken into account when identifying and providing for gifted and talented children.

We have a dedicated ‘faculty structure’ where our faculty heads meet regularly to ensure that our gifted and talented students are challenged, supported and guided to ensure that outstanding opportunities are always available.

Please contact the curriculum area directly if you require further information or you feel that additional resources would help with the pursuit to excellence.
