Gifted and Talented Pupils

We believe in providing a quality education, where all pupils can thrive and access the curriculum. This includes those of higher ability who we refer to as “Gifted and Talented”.

We aim to improve the attainment and motivation of these pupils, to enable them to work towards their full potential and provide a wide variety of different challenges and support. Our gifted students in Year 6 receive additional teaching in maths, reading and writing at a neighbouring secondary school.

In addition to academia, we are proud of our focus on nurturing and celebrating musical and sporting talents. We provide specialist musical tuition from Music For Life and athletics training from a specialist coach. These specialist activities are available to all the pupils. 

Throughout the year we offer a range of afterschool and lunchtime clubs for those children who display a particular aptitude for an area. For example, athletics clubs in preparation for Town Sports.

We are extremely proud of all of our children and their wide range of talents!
