Gifted & Talented
GIFTED AND TALENTED
Students listed as Gifted and Talented at The Garibaldi School include the top 20% of students in each year, based on their target grades and prediction data.
We provide additional provision for Gifted and Talented learners through a variety of different forms. In timetabled lesson time, this might include following a different Scheme of Work for a particular subject, or further tasks to complete as part of half-termly homework. Additional sessions are delivered by staff for a variety of University-led schemes, such as sessions tailored to the Nottingham Trent University Progression scheme.
The School also offers students from all years the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of Further and Higher Education through the partnerships that we maintain with outside providers, such as The University of Nottingham. These might include campus visits for students (usually during June and July of each year), in-house sessions focusing on University life, College life, or apprenticeship opportunities, or in-school staff-led sessions focusing on forward planning and life goals.
Outside of lesson time, students are provided with additional opportunities that they can take up, which include: subject-specific competitions in some subjects, lunchtime clubs (for example English Challenge Club for Years 7 and 8 on a Tuesday), and additional reading lists.
If you have any further questions on how you can support your child or any questions relating to the provision please do not hesitate to get in touch with the School.
