Learning Performance

This week our Most Able Key Stage 3 students from Years 7, 8 and 9 took part in interactive and motivational workshops with a Learning Performance facilitator that stretched their capacity to think more deeply, showed them how to revise more effectively and gave advice on how to prepare for exams.  They enjoyed learning creative techniques designed to develop their memory and recall skills, as well as encouraging their use of problem-solving strategies, such as deduction and inference. The Most Able students are selected as part of the Academy’s own identification of the top 10% of highest attainers in their year group. This is based on their Key Stage 2 prior attainment English and Maths test scores.
