Herts and Bucks Hub-led event - Strategies to improve more able students

28 February 2017 - 1:30pm to 4:00pm
Sir John Lawes School
Manland Way
AL5 4QP Harpenden
United Kingdom

Sir John Lawes School are hosting an afternoon session on strategies for challenging the most able students.

Ofsted’s report in 2013 ‘The most able students: are they doing as well as they should in our non-selective secondary schools?’ made it clear that too few schools set high enough expectations of what these students can achieve. 

Sir John Lawes was judged outstanding by Ofsted in 2008 and subsequently became a National Support School. Their students start with higher than average attainment scores and they feel it is important to make sure they are challenging the most able in all year groups, both through the curriculum and wider opportunities.

This afternoon session will be a condensed version of strategies that the school presented on a sold-out Challenge Partners Leadership Development Day.

Time will be allocated at the end of the session for others to share good practice. It would be an ideal afternoon for ‘more able’ co-ordinators, line managers or senior leaders with responsibility for teaching and learning to attend.

The session has a cost of £75 but is FREE for Challenge Partners schools.
