Duxford Trip Summer 2017

As a reward for their hard work we took our 14 Year 9 students to Duxford War Museum.  We had a great day out looking at all the aeroplanes and exhibits.  One exhibition involved a really cool sound and light display where we had headphones and hand held speakers that could connect up with beams of light. When this happened we could hear sound bites from people who had been in the war.…See More

Gifted and Talented Provision at Stradbroke High School

Gifted and Talented provision is an important aspect of life at Stradbroke High School.  We believe that all pupils are gifted or talented at something and our aim is to identify the areas our students have ability in so that we can develop and nurture their talents.  We are inclusive in how we categorise Gifted and Talented so that we include those who are achieving at a high level, as well as those with a particular interest in a subject.  Our aim is to stretch and challenge all pupils so that all progress and achieve their full potential.

As part of our Gifted and Talented provision, we run an Aim Higher session every Thursday after school to give our Year 10 and 11 pupils the opportunity to complete homework in school and meet with teachers if they want extra help or challenge.  As part of this programme we have Gifted Year 9 musicians running a Jazz club and we have a local Script Writer coming into school to run Script-writing classes with some able year 10 pupils.  We are intending to expand this programme further with more clubs and activities run by Gifted and Talented students, such as a Street Dance club, again run by some Year 9 pupils.

We are running a computer software coding club for some Gifted and Talented students after school on a Monday.  They are learning how to programme using Javascript and a free app called Android Script.  This means that they can use their own mobile devices to create programmes.  The club is run by an experienced software developer who has written Android Script.  This has been a great opportunity for some students to gain a head start in what is an increasingly important skill.

Trips and visits are an important part of our programme.  We have taken a number of students to visit a variety of universities including the University of Essex and Cambridge which we see as a great way to raise aspirations.  We have attended a number of Science challenge days at various universities as well as a Philosophy day at Reading university.

Within the RE department we have RE Ambassadors who have planned and carried out lessons at nearby Primary Schools and we have also held a Philosophy day here at Stradbroke for Gifted and Talented Year 5 and 6 pupils.

This is an area within the school that is rapidly expanding to ensure that our most able pupils have opportunities to excel.
