High Achievers

A large proportion of our students are 'High Achievers' and have the potential to gain the very top grades at GCSE and A Level.  As part of our commitment to meet the educational needs of all our students, we strive to provide greater challenges in lessons for students identified as ‘high achievers’ and create additional opportunities for them to demonstrate and develop their abilities. 

Our provision includes organising activities such as guest speakers, educational challenges or creative workshops for groups of students within a curriculum area and arranging specialist trips or educational visits.  We also run cross-curricular activities such as essay writing competitions and inter-school debating competitions. 

Post 16, we offer an Honours Programme that seeks to challenge our most academic students so that they can continue to be selected by the most prestigious universities and for the most oversubscribed courses.  The Honours Programme is open to ambitious students who achieve 5 or more grade 8/9 or A/A*s at GCSE and includes activities such as master classes, university visits, subject-specific conferences and extension studies.
