Gifted and Talented

We support all pupils at Shirley Heath, regardless of ability. A number of children excel in a particular area, be that Maths, Writing, Science, Sport, Art, Music, History, drama  and so on.

We challenge our most able children in a variety of ways. Please click on the links to see what opportunities we have this year for our very able pupils. In 2019-20 we are working with gtxxtraMAX who offer workshops for able pupils.
