Able, Gifted & Talented

Able, Gifted and Talented Pupils at the The Snaith School

‘Leaders have raised expectations for the progress and attainment of the most able pupils’ OFSTED 2017

What is Gifted and Talented?

The Snaith School is committed to personalising learning and raising attainment for all pupils. As part of this process, the school emphasises the importance of departments and individual teachers identifying and challenging all cohorts of pupils including those pupils who are Able Gifted and Talented.

How are you identified as Able, Gifted and Talented?

'Gifted' describes learners who have the ability to excel academically in one or more subjects such as English, Maths and Science.

'Talented' describes learners who have the ability to excel in practical skills such as Art, Music, PE, or Drama.

Able are pupils who enter our school with a high level of achievement in KS2.

At The Snaith School we are very proud of our pupils' talents, some of which include.

  • Pupils competing internationally in Gymnastics, including participating in competitions in Texas and Finland.
  • Cross country national competitors.
  • Talented boxers at county level.
  • National competitors in road cycling.
  • A footballer for Leeds Academy. 
  • National level swimmer.
  • Superbike national race champion.

What support is available for Gifted and Talented pupils?

In addition to the support provided by individual subject teachers, many AG&T projects, visits, trips, events and meetings are arranged throughout the academic year with local institutions, businesses and organisations.
