Able, Gifted and Talented
John O’Gaunt School is dedicated to meeting the needs of all students within the school and to nurturing their talents and abilities. Through having high expectations and aspirations and quality teaching and learning, our Able and Gifted students are given opportunities to reach their full potential. We offer a variety of curricular and extra-curricular activities and experiences, including masterclasses, trips, UK Maths challenge entry and the like, which allow our students to have the opportunity to achieve and participate at a very high level.
Talented pupils are usually identified by their Primary School but can often be brought to light through recommendation outside school. Those able at sport are given a huge range of opportunities through competition in house and school events and representation at county or even National level. Those talented in the Arts are enriched by Drama productions and wide-ranging musical outlets.
It is our aim at John O’Gaunt School that Able, Gifted and Talented students, along with all other students, are encouraged to achieve their full potential.
