MORE ABLE, GIFTED AND TALENTED PROVISION AT GREENBANK HIGH SCHOOL
At Greenbank High School we deliver a challenging and enriching curriculum to all our pupils. Since 2015 we have held the prestigious NACE Challenge Award, which recognises our high-quality provision for more able learners within a context of challenge for all.
When a pupil enters Greenbank High School with a Key Stage 3 SATs score of 110 or above, they are placed on our â€˜Primary More Able, Gifted and Talented Registerâ€™. They will remain on the register from Year 7 to 11.
We also have a â€˜Secondary More Able, Gifted and Talented Registerâ€™ as we recognise that some pupils excel and develop at different stages in their lives. We also recognise that pupils may have a specific â€˜gift or talentâ€™ in a subject area e.g. PE, music, dance etc which may not reflect in their SATs results. Each subject has a specific identification criteria which allows teachers to nominate pupils who fit the criteria. Parents can also nominate, so please get in touch if you feel you daughter has a gift or talent we may not know about.
Pupils who are on the Primary Register will be targeted GCSE Grades of 7-9 in all subject areas. It is our job to ensure your daughter has the support and guidance to fulfil her potential during her 5-year journey with us.
Pupils who are on the Secondary Register will have slightly lower target grades but will be stretched and challenged to help exceed their targets, especially in the subject areas they are identified as being MAGT.
