Gifted & Talented
At Exmouth Community College, our central ethos is encapsulated in “Achieve more for All.” This means that our most able students are encouraged and supported to achieve their full potential. We aim to prepare our Gifted & Talented students to have both the subject knowledge and confidence to go to the best universities in the country. We have been very successful in recent years, with students regularly achieving places at Oxford, Cambridge or Russell Group universities.
The work to enable these students to achieve their full potential begins with identifying those young people who are highly able, gifted and/or talented. We then provide opportunities for extended learning and enrichment. Many of the opportunities in this area will take place beyond the normal school day and may include trips to top universities, additional projects to deepen their understanding or develop their communication skills.
All of the College staff take their responsibility for supporting highly able, gifted and talented students very seriously. However, of equal importance is the support and development which students receive at home.
We use intervention and mentoring if under achievement is identified.
