Stretch and Challenge - Khalsa Academies Trust

Stretch and Challenge

At Khalsa Secondary Academy we believe that students with particular abilities and talents must be recognised and supported to be stretched – intellectually, emotionally, aesthetically, socially and physically. 

Our provision for the more able recognises the need to actively encourage and motivate certain groups of students by targeted support and opportunities. Thus we provide a challenging and enriched curriculum to enable our more able and talented students to emerge, be recognised and developed. 

Pastoral Leaders, supported by the Stretch & Challenge Coordinator, Ms Rosato, provide enrichment opportunities to challenge and stretch their cohort further. Specific stretch and challenge opportunities include:

  • Khalsa Talks
  • Links (incl. workshops and visits) with Russell Group Universities
  • Membership of International Gateway for Gifted Youth IGGY 
  • Bright Sparks
  • Arts Award
