At Bishop Gore we group pupils in such a way as to allow them to attain their full potential. An Enrichment Programme is established in Key Stage Three. This enables subject teachers to identify talented or exceptional pupils and enrich their programme of study through the production of a project. The enrichment programme will follow a timetable, similar to that for homework and this will ensure that there are no clashes. The enrichment Programme runs in Years 7, 8 and 9. All identified able pupils will also have Individual Learning Plans and copies of these will be given to all subject teachers. This is part of our Equal Opportunities Policy ensuring that we support all pupils.
In addition to many activities provided within school, there is a rich provision outside normal school time. There are a wide selection of activities such as:
Lifeguards and swimming
Bengali language lessons for Key Stage 3, 4 and 5
First Aid – an opportunity to earn certificates in First Aid and Resuscitation
Aerobics for all pupils and parents
