GTX

Standing for Gifted, Talented and eXtension, GTX is Merchant Taylors’ Friday afternoon enrichment programme, replacing the ‘conventional’ school timetable for Year 7-9 boys and offering ‘vertical grouping’ to enable students in all three years into work collaboratively and outside the restrictive confines of traditional academic assessment. Many leading schools are investing time and resources in enrichment activities and Merchant Taylors’ is no exception – GTX is designed to stretch our students beyond the confines of exam specifications and it evolves into World Tomorrow Today in Year 10 and Year 11, where boys embark on a series of six week modules on life skills, for example First Aid or Cooking, and cognitive development, including Debating and an introduction to the World of the Arts.
