For high performing students, our ‘Gifted and Talented’ programme supports and stretches ability. These students are monitored by dedicated staff to ensure that their learning is suitably challenging and stimulating in their field of excellence, and the group accesses external opportunities to develop personally, through visits to universities.

These students are identified as either those who are in the top 10% of their year group, based on their academic ability and potential, or individuals who have reached county standard (or the equivalent of) in the fields of sport and creative and performing arts.
