Targeting our students with the highest cognitive ability enables us to monitor and intervene quickly when our students underperform, when they do not participate in CCAs, or when they feel unchallenged by our school.

This in-depth and targeted intervention and support helps these students remain focussed on achieving excellence and excelling across their subjects. Academic mentors set reading between sessions and discuss personal interests to deepen knowledge on specific fields, whilst encouraging participation in the BaH diplomas and CCA opportunities.

This mentoring culminates in a final assignment, which could be participation in an Oxbridge essay competition, an independent piece of research, or a dissertation on a specialist topic. These are compiled and published annually.
