Gifted and Talented

At Merchant Taylors’ Boys’ Junior School we aim to challenge each child in all aspects of the Curriculum, mentally, physically and creatively. We aim to develop self-discipline, cooperation and teamwork. We set high expectations which inspire, motivate and challenge pupils.

In order to achieve such aims, we ensure that pupils have opportunities to develop specific skills or talents.

There are many definitions of Gifted and Talented. The QCDA states and identifies;

“Gifted Learners are those who have abilities in one or more subjects in the statutory school curriculum other than art, design, music and PE.”
“Talented Learners are those who have abilities in art, design, music, PE or performing arts.”

The Boys’ Junior School have been very busy providing opportunities for our Gifted and Talented Learners. We provide a wealth of opportunities for our Gifted and Talented pupils.
