Talent spotting is part of our job. If a child if gifted in a particular discipline we build a personalised programme providing the challenge of advanced problem-solving techniques, answering open-ended questions and learning to apply the processes they have been taught in class to unfamiliar contexts.

Children with particular talent in sport, music and drama are encouraged to nurture their skills through deliberate practice, and opportunities to perform, remembering that, from a growth mindset perspective, ‘hard work beats talent when talent does not work hard’ (Tim Notke).
