Extending the Highly Able in a Comprehensive School - Thursday 14th June 2018


In a county with grammar schools, the importance of really supporting highly able students is paramount at The Cotswold School.  It is also, rightly, a key focus for Ofsted.  We will look at the strategies and policies in place to stretch, challenge and engage the highly able across all key stages and the impact this has had on individual pupils and overall outcomes.  The day will include:

  • Whole school learning walk focusing on highly able students
  • Workshops looking at teaching and learning strategies to increase challenge and opportunities in the classroom, extra-curricular opportunities for the highly able, identifying and monitoring the progress of highly able (including disadvantaged highly able students)
  • Pupil panels to discuss our provision with highly able pupils across the key stages

This day would suit either teachers leading on highly able provision or main scale teachers keen to extend their repertoire and support.

Cost: £75 (£50 for partner schools)

Number of places: 12
