Ski Trip 2017 Video

While not an exclusively TAG student event, Ski Trip 2017 was all about providing the opportunity for students to develop a range of talents, abilities, gifts – we believe these qualities are more-so learned rather than strictly innate.

See the video here, giving a flavour of what a terrific group did all week.

Forms for Ski Trip 2018 are in Student Services and places are selling quickly…

ACD #2 2016-17

Our 2nd Alternative Curriculum Day (ACD) of the year saw a terrific range of learning activities.

As said before, we firmly believe that talents, abilities and gifts are largely developed through experiences and self-application – ACD is about raising the aspirations and developing experiences of all our learners so that talent, ability and gift is fostered…

Y7 – undertook some terrific Performance-based activity as well as Careers-oriented work

Y8 – some TAG students “unlocked potential” while others were engaged in a brilliant SBS event

Y9 – studied some vital aspects of their RE curriculum

Y10 – explored future pathways in a terrific, interactive setting

Y11 – did some science and technology-related learning which engaged and enthused all!

Sixth Form – were involved in a range of alternative learning experiences.

These pictures give a mild flavour – well done all!

TAG Parental Event

The recent parent event (which was ‘by invitation’ with others to follow) focused on supporting some of our TAG students.

There were lots of ideas about how to support student learning at home and some excellent contact points that deal more generally with children’s well-being.

The PowerPoint driving the event can be found below:
