Programme for More Able Students

Through our More Able programme we aim to harness the potential of our most able students, to challenge and stretch, and to develop their confidence and help them surpass their own expectations. The core of the programme is built around thinking skills, critical thinking and an extended project.

Students taking part in the programme are encouraged to take advantage of the expansive educational opportunities offered by Biddick Academy. We believe that taking part in a wide range of activities enriches the students’ educational experience and inspires them to aim as high as possible.
