We embrace individuality and understand that every child’s needs are unique.
The Comenian Programme has been developed to support our academically most able and creatively-talented pupils. We help individuals realise their full potential by nurturing their aspirations and guiding motivation.
All subject areas throughout the school differentiate according to ability, challenging and extending the development of the most gifted pupils. Those who qualify for the Comenian Programme and meet the strict criteria of the national programme 'Young, Gifted and Talented' (YG&T) have access to a wide range of activities such as university summer schools, a year-round programme of specialist courses, online study groups and discussion forums.
