More Able, Gifted and Talented

We recognise the importance of identifying a wide range of abilities and talents, and of providing opportunities to nurture them. Enrichment and extension activities are provided across the curriculum and teachers have high expectations for every boy, encouraging them achieve their true potential.

Our classes are fluidly set in Year 4 for Maths and English, with a faster band of classes and a band of classes which operates at a more moderate pace. There is regular movement between sets, to allow for pupils developing at different paces. This setting continues into Year 5 and 6 to enable pupils to access the curriculum at the pace which suits them best.

In Years 7 and 8, boys will follow either a Common Entrance or Scholarship route and we encourage their interests and talents in a wide range of subject areas.
