Gifted and Talented

Some pupils are exceptionally able in certain areas. Here at Kingswood we want to develop every pupil's positive potential and our definition of ability encompasses academic, practical, creative, musical, physical, sporting and social performance. The School aims to provide opportunities that ensure that the skills and understanding of all pupils may progress at an appropriate pace and that individuals raise their achievement at appropriate levels.

Some pupils are identified as Gifted and Talented (G&T) prior to entering Kingswood. Others are identified whilst at the school by Heads of Department. The Gifted and Talented Tutor produces summaries for staff and runs regular activities for groups of identified pupils. The Tutor also works with parents, tutors and specific teachers to help G&T pupils undertake extension work or extra activities and mentors individual pupils when necessary.
