Gifted and Talented Students
Sirius Academy West is an “Ofsted Outstanding School” that takes its responsibilities for providing high quality learning to the zenith. We challenge our Gifted & Talented students to push the boundaries by lifting expectations and encouraging them to aspire beyond the realms of possibilities. Furthermore we recognise current high attainment and potential equally.
There are a range of different cohorts within the academy:
1) Gifted and Talented Cohort
2) Subject able cohort
3) Leadership cohorts
Students in the cohorts are challenged throughout the year through high quality engaging lessons, curriculum learning experiences beyond the classroom and extensive extra-curricular opportunities . We also take our parental engagement seriously and realise that, together with the participation of parents and carers, we can encourage our students to achieve at a level significantly in advance of the average for their year group. We seek to create a culture of scholarship; one in which we embed learning and give youngsters a sense of confidence to achieve their maximum potential.
