Able, Gifted, and Talented
At Mayville, we are committed to specialist provision for all aspects of pupils’ educational needs. We therefore ensure that Able, Gifted and Talented pupils are identified early in their school careers and receive appropriate acknowledgement, support and challenge as they grow and develop within the School. Our Able, Gifted and Talented pupils have the potential to become the leaders, thinkers and creators of the future, and we value and nurture them accordingly.
Provision for Able, Gifted and Talented pupils enjoys specialist co-ordination and will be found throughout the school, recognising and cultivating excellence and potential across the year groups. Able pupils are highlighted by our tracking system and academic policies, which ensure that they are consistently and appropriately stretched and stimulated. Equally, pupils benefit from a carefully developed enrichment programme with apt specialist support.
Activities for the Able, Gifted and Talented range from leading roles in Rock Challenge and School sports teams to clubs in Art, Dance, MFL and ICT. We participate in Maths Challenges, follow book awards and provide dedicated specialist days in Science. Pupils have the opportunity to extend their interest and curiosity in wide-ranging ways, whether it is Philosophy, Greek, Business or the Cold War. Conferences, workshops and events acquaint pupils with subjects which look beyond the present curriculum and to academic futures, and there are inspirational academic and vocational speakers.
Scholarships or bursaries may be available for pupils on the Able, Gifted and Talented programme.
