Gifted and talented

Who are the “most able”?

Any student that enters the Academy, from primary school, with a Level 5 in English and Maths is identified as “most able” (or “gifted and talented”).

The provision for the most able at Stockley Academy aims to ensure all pupils are stretched and able to develop to their full potential. Students are encouraged and invited to take part in a variety of events and activities as part of the extended schools programme.

What support is available for gifted and talented students at Stockley Academy?

The Academy has to meet the needs of all students including providing opportunities for the most able. As well as your child’s class teacher, you should talk to the Assistant Principal specifically responsible for most able students. The Academy registers most able students in their annual school census.

The Academy provides a wide range of activities and support for gifted and talented students both within and beyond the classroom.

Within the classroom

The most fundamental intervention your child will receive is through how they are encouraged and monitored by their classroom teacher within a lesson: their teacher will plan and differentiate according to every student’s individual educational needs.


There is also a wide range of extra-curricular activities available within the Aademy including: University Visits, The Brilliant Club, Urban Scholars, Master Classes, subject specific Intervention and enrichment.
