High Starters

At Hinchley Wood we use the term ‘High Starters’ to refer to students who either arrive in Year 7 with a level of ability that is considerably greater than their peers, or for students who demonstrate this ability as they progress through the school.  Inclusivity is very important to us, and for this reason, we do not run a specific programme for certain students, recognising that students can excel at different points in their education.

We are committed to providing our most able students with as many opportunities as we can, which, alongside excellent teaching that stretches students in the classroom, should enable our High Starters to reach their full potential.  This section of our website is one such opportunity for students to extend their learning beyond the classroom, engaging in extra-curricular activities that will enhance their progress in lessons.  The ideas we have provided are designed to immerse students in the wider context of each subject, providing them with greater insight into what the subject entails and nurturing their enthusiasm for learning.

Ideas are split into practical tasks and film/literature suggestions, as well as into Key Stages; we hope both students and parents find it easy to access and use and that it leads to interesting discussions at home.
