Very Able & Talented

At Bishop Stopford we aim to enable and inspire all students to reach their unique potential, but recognise that many of our students are particularly able or talented in any number of areas. In order to nurture these talents and promote high aspirations we offer a broad and challenging curriculum, alongside a range of enrichment opportunities so that students may extend their learning experience further.

The Aspiration Roadmap at the bottom of this page outlines what this looks like for each year group in school.

‘Talented’ students are those who have the ability to excel in practical or creative skills, and have exceptional performance ability in a specific area/area(s) e.g. Design and Technology, Music, Drama and P.E.
