Aspire and Achieve

The Aspire and Achieve provision is for students who are classed as being high ability based on their end of Year 6 exams. We aim to inspire, support and develop our students to become passionate life-long learners. It is essential the ‘high end’ students in particular recognise their potential and achieve educational excellence, both academically and personally, regardless of background, gender or ethnic group. This can only be achieved through:
  • Outstanding learning in the classroom;
  • Celebrating academic success and achievements;
  • Providing enriching opportunities outside of the classroom through visits to different institutions;
  • Effective and accurate subject based interventions and support.
