More Able Students

We aim to offer a varied and challenging curriculum to all of our pupils but we do identify more able students through the use of an Able, Gifted and Talented register.

The identification of more able students is done in two ways.

  1. By the use of the data available to us (Midyis and FFT) the top 5-10% of each year group is automatically placed on the register.
  2. By departmental nominations. Departments have the opportunity to nominate students for the register, according to their progress during the year. For a student to be placed on the register through this method they must be nominated by 2-3 different departments. The number of students on the register at any one time is between 5-10% of each year group.
