Stretching able students

Stretching able students is always a challenge. How do teachers encourage pupils to develop themselves further, especially in lockdown? And from a student perspective, how do you not only stretch yourself, but also decide which subjects to choose for your GCSEs or A-levels?

Working with our Year 9 students, Fyling Hall’s Art Department is raising the bar for those students who have shown extraordinary attitude and effort in lockdown. The challenge is also open to those who are considering taking Art as a GCSE. We cannot wait to see the results of those trialling their GCSE Art work early. What a great way of stretching able students!
