Gifted & Talented

Our school is part of the Independent and State School Partnership and aims, through this venture, to create opportunities where our students learn together through a common area of interest.

Our focus over the past couple of years has been to challenge our Gifted and Talented students in Year 10 through Modern Foreign Languages and Film Study. By doing this, we hope to make modern foreign language more than just ‘functional’, in the sense that a language is cross-curricular and can truly be an access to cultural medium and cultural diversity.

Therefore, through special days organised within the school curriculum, we offer our pupils the opportunity to meet peers from other local schools, watch a fantastic film and do lots of interesting ‘extra-ordinary’ and challenging activities relating to the movie and work with languages as they are spoken rather than in text books.
