At Brandles we have designed our curriculum to meet the needs of our students. Boys with the potential to achieve GCSEs are supported through individualised programmes so they have every chance to realise their potential.
We also have a comprehensive programme of alternative provision that develops students physical, social and mental well-being. This programme includes bushcraft, outdoor activities, foundation and higher project qualifications, certificate of personal effectiveness and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
Able, Gifted and Talented students
At Brandles School we believe that all children should be challenged and inspired to achieve the best they can.
We understand the importance of creating a curriculum tailored to the individual needs of our pupils to motivate them to fulfil their potential. Gifted and Talented pupils are those who have been identified as showing an exceptional ability in one area or across different subjects. It might be that they are talented singers, artists or mathematicians. Whatever their unique ability, teachers will stretch and stimulate them so they can gain the highest possible level.
This year will see the implementation of a Gifted and Talented Programme, offering a variety of activities designed to expand and inspire these boys to be the very best. The Programme will begin in September and will run throughout the year.
There is not one single definition of what a gifted and talented child is, however, at Brandles we believe that we must strive to provide these boys with the opportunities to develop and demonstrate their abilities both within and outside of the curriculum.
