Most Able Provision
Longdendale High Schools Most Able cohort consists of the top 10 % of achievers in each year group. The students are identified in year 7 and they remain in the Most Able cohort throughout their time at Longdendale. The students in this cohort are provided with more challenging tasks in all subject areas and these students are provided with aspirational targets to motivate and encourage optimum levels of effort.
The Most Able students are tracked and the Most Able Co-ordinator assesses their progress. Intervention and assertive mentoring is provided for Most Able students who are making less than expected progress.
Additional enrichment opportunities are provided and we have strong links with Oxford University. Our Most Able students are encouraged to be independent learners who strive for the highest grades possible and we expect them to embrace in a structured home learning programme and carry out additional research with a wide range of reading and enrichment activities.
