Gifted and Talented

Rising to the Challenge


“…meeting the needs of… gifted and talented students is part of a commitment to ensuring suitable educational opportunities for all students rather than a separate activity”
(Eyre and Lowe)


Gifted and Talented students at The Gryphon School have their additional needs met through a wide variety of challenges; the most significant of which is the provision of targeted work in every day lessons in the classroom, which aims to develop skills and strategies that enable them to develop positive behaviours for learning such as thinking, questioning, confidence and independence. As part of the extension provision, The Gryphon has numerous extension activities over the course of the school year. Information about these additional projects, tasks, events, trips and visits can be found on the G&T page on FROG. Students are encouraged to personalise their development by taking advantage of the opportunities open to them and develop a portfolio of their work. Through mentoring sessions with their tutor, an active dialogue is encouraged to develop an awareness of learning and how to tackle problems and make progress. This, coupled with monitoring by the G&T Project Coordinators, ensures that the school has ambitious aspirations for all of our students.

To enquire about any aspect of G&T provision at the Gryphon and your child’s needs, please contact Jim Gower (Assistant Head Learning and Progression) james.gower@gryphon.dorset.sch.uk
