Gifted & Talented
We provide short courses for gifted and talented students which demand skills outside those required by the examination syllabus.
Imberhorne School, East Grinstead asked us to devise a day which would test their top echelon “gifted and talented” year 10 students, emphasising problem solving, communication and teamwork. The task we devised was thematic and ran continuously throughout the day. Their successful progress relied on how well they completed each phase.
They were not directed in any part of this and their teachers found it informative that they did not cope particularly well with this element of the task: they were far more accustomed to being lead and coached through almost all the academic aspects of their School experience and were out of their comfort zone.
This course has now been developed into a widely popular event for the more capable students as it is seen to give valuable insight into elements of interaction and teamwork that are not necessarily found in the usual curriculum areas but are crucial to success in life.
