Gifted & Talented Provision in Science

In science we identify gifted and talented students in the following ways:

  • End of year exam results
  • Teacher assessments
  • Verbal and written responses which demonstrate an advanced understanding

A G&T Science student will:

  • Have significant scientific knowledge beyond the classroom
  • Have an interest in current scientific affairs which can be applied to lessons
  • Be aware of how science impacts will affect and shape our future
  • Be able to critically evaluate practical methods

Strategies used to help realise the potential of our Gifted and Talented students:

  • Extended tasks
  • Deeper critical analysis
  • Wider reading activities and reading lists
  • The opportunity to become a Subject Ambassador
  • Independent Learning Tasks
  • Differentiated class and homework tasks
  • Self-assessment activities
  • The potential to be involved with many different trips and competitions running throughout the year such as the
    • EES engineering experience
    • Super Physics Competition with Yr9
    • Gold Crest award with Yr12
    • Science in Action at Warwick University with Yr11 and Yr13
    • and many more...

Reading lists are available to download from the website, or ask teachers for a copy. In addition to this there are many excellent resources to be found on the internet which may spark your interest or extend your knowledge. Ask teachers for subject specific sites or have a look at any of the following:
