More Able

More Able Students

At de Stafford, we are committed to ensuring that our More Able students are identified and that they are challenged to achieve their full potential.

Regular assessments monitor the progress of all students to raise awareness of the needs of our highest performing students.  Enrichment activities are also organised during the year to expand the horizons of these students and to encourage them to aim high.

More Able Academic

Students are identified upon entry into the school and those with exceptionally high MIDYIS scores are called our 'More Able' students.  Their names are highlighted to all teaching staff within the school, as students whose progress will need to be monitored in order to check that they are being suitably challenged in lessons at the highest levels, with the expectation that they are capable of achieving the top possible grades.

Talented Students

Students who show a particular flair in more practical subjects such as Performing Arts, Physical Education and our creative subjects and whose performance is deemed to be exceptional are identified as being 'Talented' students.  Just like with our More Able academic students, our Talented students are monitored and challenged to make the very best of their abilities.

“Reigate College hosts a number of different events for ‘More Able’ students.  This year, students from de Stafford (in Years 8 and 9)have had the opportunity to take part in sessions in Law, Psychology, Classics and Geography.  The teachers who have held the sessions have always commented on the excellent engagement and behaviour of de Stafford students. They are excellent ambassadors for the school.

 

Year 10 students have also had the opportunity to take participate in Year 12 Philosophy lessons. These sessions took place during the day, so that de Stafford students got to see the College in ‘full swing’ and understand what is expected at Key Stage 5.”  Reigate College, 2019
