Gifted & Talented

The Gifted & Talented PE programme is embedded across the school. Over 100 students are on the programme from year 7-11. Students on the programme train weekly using all the school’s sports facilities such as the fitness suite, sports hall and tennis centre.

Students go through specialised fitness testing, with the results posted home to parents in areas such as coordination, balance, muscular endurance, VO2 max, lung capacity and agility.

The students all compete in the 'superstars' competition after the Easter holidays where all the students will be marked on aspects of their performances in sports such as football, tennis, table tennis, volleyball, basketball and cricket. The best performing boy and girl in each year group receives a £10 JD sports gift voucher.

The school also arranges annual trips to Bath University for each Year group with the opportunity to train with elite university coaches in areas such as speed and agility, multi-skills and sport specific activities like badminton, football and swimming.

The annual school Sports Presentation Evening (in June) awards two G&T students from each year group as recognition of the students overall performance, commitment and effort to the programme.
