Gifted and Talented
At Banovallum we aim to develop the talents and aspirations of all students. Those who join the school with high prior attainment in core subjects will be placed in a fast-track group from the outset to accelerate progress.
Students who show particular gifts in a specific subject are quickly identified and additional opportunities are provided for them in and beyond the classroom.
These come in the form of extension activity in lessons; differentiated homework and encouraged to participate in the wide range of skill enhancement opportunities and competitions.
Such activity over the last year has included: school productions; art and photography competitions; chess club; writing groups; Project X RAF Challenge; Young Enterprise to name but a few.
