Able and Ambitious

Able and Ambitious Co-ordinator – Mr C Dyer (Assistant Head Teacher)

At Christ’s School we aim to provide a challenging curriculum with both supra-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities that stretch all groups of students. Our Able & Ambitious policy was created as part of this provision to ensure the highest outcomes for our brightest and most ambitious students.

Our programme for supporting and challenging our Able & Ambitious students is multifaceted and centres on the highest quality teaching in every lesson ensuring every student is challenged. In addition to this, all subject areas provide opportunity outside of the classroom to challenge their Able & Ambitious students through Trips, guest lectures, programmes of study and more.

Further to this there is a bespoke programme for our Most Able & Ambitious students in each year group. This is a 5-year programme that encompasses most subject areas and fascinating learning opportunities outside of the normal curriculum. Students who are part of this programme have Individual Learning Plans  to ensure all staff know how to stretch and challenge our brightest and most ambitious students at Christ’s School.

If you would like to find out any more information regarding the Able & Ambitious provision please read the policy below or contact Mr Dyer.
