Gifted & Talented
At Barking Abbey we believe that all students are entitled to an education that will enable them to develop to their full potential, be that intellectual, physical, aesthetic, creative, emotional, spiritual or social. Barking Abbey is committed to providing an equality of challenge for all students and an inspiring education for life. The School’s aims emphasises that teachers will meet the needs of students of all abilities and that they will motivate students in order for them to become independent learners. This is also implicit in the mission statement of the school where students are encouraged to become independent thinkers and learners. It is hoped that through the Gifted and Talented Initiative that the high achievers have access to extensive opportunities, which will make learning more challenging, stimulating and enjoyable.
