Most Able Students
At Harris Academy Beckenham we offer comprehensive provision for our Most Able students.
Our mission is to provide an excellent education for all students. We strive to work in partnership with parents and the local community to prepare students to take an active and positive role in a technological society.
‘Our most able students are those whose functioning is at least at the upper end or above that normally associated with that Key Stage, and whose abilities are so well developed or so far in advance of their peer group, that we have to provide additional learning experiences which develop, enhance and extend their identified abilities.’ (Taken from ‘Gifted Education’ by David George)
We wish to develop innovative and effective teaching and learning methods that encourage the students to strive for excellence: the very best each individual can achieve. The Academy takes a lead role in providing the best resources for learning in the local community.
