Gifted and talented

At Charter Academy we are committed to providing an environment which encourages students to maximise their potential.


A gifted student is one who is in the top 5-10% of the student population (DfE definition) and one who ‘has the capacity for or demonstrates high levels of performance in an academic area.’

A talented student is one who is in the top 5-10% of those with a domain specific ability in a non-academic area:
• Physical talent
• Visual / performing abilities
• Mechanical ingenuity
• Outstanding leadership and social awareness
• Creativity

Our Gifted and Talented programme, provides extra activities to stretch and enrich these high-flying students, and we work with teachers to ensure that classroom activities are tailored to our top-end scholars.
