At BTAC, we want all children to have the opportunity to achieve beyond their expectations. This includes students who demonstrate strong aptitude and ability beyond that of their peers. These students are identified as being high potential learners.
We understand that all learners are unique, and there are myriad ways for students to demonstrate excellence. We offer our high potential learners a differentiated curriculum and enrichment opportunities that extend them in ways that are most meaningful to them.
We identify highly able learners using a range of data collected both internally and externally and through communication with other stakeholders in a student’s education.
High potential learners are students whose ability is more advanced than similar-aged peers across different areas. This includes intellectual ability, speed of learning and the ability to manipulate complex thinking patterns.
We offer a range of opportunities for students to extend and excel.
The internationally recognised Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme creates opportunities for young people to ‘develop skills, get physically active, give service and experience adventure’ and can play a critical role in development.
