Gifted & Talented
At Great Baddow High School we have many high achieving sports men and women in various sports, these pupils will require a little more support in balancing training commitments with school life. The gifted and talented programme aims to provide a support structure to enable our high level sporting students to achieve in both aspects of school and sport.
A weekly tutor session with just the gifted students allows us to work through any issues or problems these pupils might have, it also allows likeminded students to talk with each other about their achievements. Alongside this one seminar each term is put on to support and give information on a number of subjects to these pupils; in the past we have had seminars on strength and conditioning, nutrition, and a number of high level guest speakers in.
Below is an outline of how we define our gifted and talented students, if you feel you son or daughter fits into this category please do not hesitate to download the form below and send in to the school.
The gifted and talented programme is designed to give the best support possible to those pupils who are committing many hours to high level practice and competition alongside their school work.
Year 7 – the top 15 students in the year group as decided by their baseline PE level at October half term. This number could rise to a maximum of 20 if levels do not clearly separate.
