High Starters

This section of our website provides an  opportunity for students to extend their learning beyond the classroom, engaging in extra-curricular activities that will enhance their progress in lessons.  

The ideas 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.  We hope that any interested student will take up some of the ideas offered. 

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.

In addition to the above, Hinchley Wood runs a programme of events, usually one activity per year group for specifically identified ‘High Starter’ students.  We use the term ‘High Starters’ to refer to students who either arrive in Year 7 with a level of ability in a range of subjects that is considerably greater than their peers, or for students who demonstrate this ability as they progress through the school. 

However, where any of our students show an area of interest or strength, they are encouraged to develop themselves  beyond the curriculum both in lessons and independently outside school.

Speakers for Schools - Weekly Live Broadcasts

"We believe nothing better inspires young people than the direct sharing of advice and experiences" quote from Speakers for Schools.

The Speakers for Schools Inspiration Programme provides a network of today’s most inspiring figures across business, arts, politics and more, donating their time to help inspire students to fuel their ambition.

Before Covid, the organisation would work with schools to get inspirational speakers to talk to students.  Like so many organisations, they have had to go online and now offer a regular programme of live video talks that students can join from home.

Visit the Speakers for Schools website to see the broadcast timetable and details of how to join the talks. 

JOINING THE LIVE BROADCASTS IS EASY:
