This programme features three secondary schools which have implemented the Gifted and Talented programme using the principles of provision, identification and monitoring.
At Eastlea Community School, the new programme has had a knock-on effect on the attainment of other students. Techniques include early identification of Year 6 pupils in local primary schools, and using gifted and talented pupils to teach other pupils.
St Marylebone School focuses on provision with a view to stretching all students and encouraging higher-level thinking skills. The Capital City Academy recognises that academic and sporting skills develop at different rates and uses "stage not age" to provide for those with special sports abilities.
