More and Most Able

Students can grow and develop their talent through their 5 years at Crookhorn College where we will encourage all students to achieve their full potential both inside and outside the classroom. Our lessons are appropriately differentiated to stretch and challenge all students and develop greater depth of knowledge in our subjects. However, those who are attaining highly across the curriculum or in specific areas are encouraged to partake in enrichment opportunities throughout the curriculum to challenge their potential further. In addition, where necessary, certain students are offered mentoring in Year 11, to support them to gain the highest grades. Events are also organised for the students to develop their awareness of global issues and develop leadership and team working skills.

Our careers and work experience team are working with local universities such as Portsmouth and Southampton on a new initiative which will promote university life to our students, and we are establishing some STEM activities that will provide aspiration and challenge to the higher attaining students.

All more and most able students are encouraged to complete the ‘challenge’ badge. The tasks below are needed to be completed by the students who will then receive their challenge badge from Mrs Affleck, who runs the more and most-able programme. Mrs Affleck can be contacted through the College telephone number or via email at
