Extension Learning

Extension Learning (also known as Gifted and Talented or GATE programme) gives an opportunity for students to engage in extra activities that they show a talent for.  Our Concept Learning, MADD (Make a Difference Day) and differentiated grouping enables teachers to cater for and extend children who need it. Other ways we cater for these students is through withdrawal groups in areas such as Visual Art, English and PE.
