More Able Students & Enrichment
More Able Students at Lutterworth College
A student is categorised as being ‘more able’ if their prior attainment indicates that they can achieve the highest grades. This is shown by their prior attainment profile and current target grades.
In addition, students may display a ‘talent’ within a subject area. For some students this may be in several subjects.
We recognise that students may wish to go beyond the content taught in class to explore something that has particularly interested them or may relate to a future career aspiration.
