拉伸和支持 – how do we stretch and support students?

大多数父母都想知道他们选择的学校将如何延伸他们的女儿, especially if she enters as a high achiever already, and how she will be supported if she finds things difficult. A summary of how we do both these things is below.

学术拉伸

一些学生将在入学过程中被认定为潜在的学术学者, 还有一些人将在这里学习期间以学识和求知欲为基础成为学术学者. 每年各大娱乐平台网址都会颁发一些额外的荣誉学术奖学金,以表彰在这一年中表现出色的学生, 包括在考试. Clear intellectual enquiry is a key criteria for these.

各大娱乐平台网址确实希望“学术学者”能继续在学生中表现最好,并充分利用所有提供的机会. 然而, it is important to note that most academic enrichment, 如下详细, 是否对所有学生开放,前提是参与有趣的活动可以激发学生的热情,并帮助每个人取得成就. 课程是完全不同的,以确保即使是最能干的学生在课堂上受到挑战和发展. 偶尔, an exam may be taken ahead of the rest of the cohort, 但这是不寻常的:各大娱乐平台网址更喜欢超出教学大纲,而不是加快学生的课程进度, as universities prefer all exams to have been taken in the same season.

然而, we do have two staff who have a specialist responsibility for scholarship, and they work closely with the Oxbridge coordinators. 除了正常的充实方案外,学者们还获得了一项专门活动方案:包括讲座, 研讨会, trips and visits that are focused around a termly theme. 之前的主题有黄金、丝绸之路、启蒙和新技术. After having experienced the activities, 女孩们单独或以小组形式就这个主题提出自己的项目. Scholars are also expected to undertake an Extended Project.

一旦学生进入第五年级(10年级),她可能被认为适合进入竞争激烈的大学(如牛津和剑桥), 常春藤盟校, 医学院),然后她将被提供进入专家准备课程. Around a third of each year group will follow this programme, entering at any point between Year 10 and the summer of Year 12.

The Extended Project Qualification

大学告诉各大娱乐平台网址,扩展项目资格(EPQ) 3级是本科学习的一个很好的准备,因为它提供了独立的真实证据, 批判性思维. It is a stand-alone qualification, an extension from studies, 通过为学生提供各大娱乐平台网址他们自己主题的公开辩论和研究的机会来激发学生的热情. Students of all abilities from the Lower Fifth Form can opt to take the EPQ, 除了普通中等各大娱乐平台网址证书考试或一个水平课程,还将教授有效研究或时间管理等技能. 学生独立学习是很重要的,但有一个导师来评估他们的进步. 它主要关注:

学术支持

许多学生在某一时刻会发现他们的学术项目的某个方面极具挑战性,而且有很多可用的支持.

首先要找的应该是学生的班主任,他会很乐意为学生复习材料或帮助她理解她觉得困难的地方. There are also subject clinics which take place at lunchtime or after 学校, where a girl can pop in for some extra help or explanation from a teacher. 六年级学生担任主题大使和学习导师,在诊所和准备期间帮助更小的女孩解决直接的问题. 在一些科目, we also have Associate Staff, who are additional to our full time staff, and can offer one-to-one tuition at a small charge if parents wish.

Teacher at front of class

一些进入学校的女孩被诊断患有阅读障碍或类似的处理问题, 以及其他可能被认定为有特殊各大娱乐平台网址需要(SEN)的人. This is entirely usual and nothing to be ashamed or concerned about. 在这种情况下, 学业支持主任将联系女孩的父母,讨论筛选和适当的支持. This may take the form of attendance at small group sessions, a period of one-to-one tuition at a small charge, 或者在某些情况下, adaptation of the student’s curriculum eg studying one language rather than two, or taking a foundation subject rather than a higher level. If the girl has a qualifying score from her screening tests, she may be entitled to exam concessions such as extra time or computer use, if this reflects her normal way of working. There are strict rules about access arrangements which have to be adhered to.

Some girls may have a visual, 行动不便或听力障碍可能会影响他们的学习,各大娱乐平台网址能够通过调整他们的课程或课程中使用的资源来支持这些学生.

各大娱乐平台网址跟踪女童在特殊各大娱乐平台网址需求和残疾登记册上的进展,以确保她们与队列中的其他女童取得同等进展, and adapt our interventions accordingly. 各大娱乐平台网址的目标是让每个女孩都能发展自己的智慧和技能,以应对她可能遇到的任何学习问题, 并能够在工作场所克服和管理它们,这样它们就不会对工作表现或幸福感产生负面影响.
