Gifted and Talented
Warwick School recognizes the importance of providing opportunities for pupils with gifts and talents in all aspects of School life.
Throughout the School a wide range of teaching methods and strategies are used to ensure that all pupils achieve well in relation to their capability. We are committed to matching what is taught and how it is taught to the pupils’ abilities and aptitudes.
Each academic department develops and reviews regularly a Learning and Teaching programme for the most able pupils.
The following strategies are used where appropriate:
- Differentiation by outcome, resource, task, dialogue, support, pace, content and independence;
- Differentiated homework where appropriate;
- Skills-based activities with an emphasis on higher order thinking skills, e.g. problem-solving, decision-making, predicting, evaluation;
- Learning tasks which are creative and have an open ceiling of achievement;
- Independent learning opportunities;
- Enrichment and/or extension activities;
- Visits to school by experts, e.g. scientists, philosophers, authors, artists, musicians, etc.
Out of class we aim to provide:
- As wide an extra-curricular programme as can be resourced;
- Clubs and Societies at lunchtime and after school;
- Cluster activities with our ISSP partnership schools;
- Access to external master classes and summer schools.
