At Traill International School we feel it is important
to provide an environment which encourages a striving for excellence
- where success is recognized and valued by everyone. Within the
overall framework of the School we aim to encourage all students
to develop their personalities, talents and abilities to the full.
We encourage hard work and commitment, and celebrate achievement
in all aspects of school life. We also believe that teaching and
learning should be challenging and enjoyable for students of all
abilities. Finally, we recognise the need to identify our gifted
and talented students as early as possible and to make enhanced
provision for them.
What does ‘gifted and talented’ mean?
Students who are referred to as gifted are regarded as the most able academically whilst those who are considered talented possess special expertise in areas such as sport, music, art and drama.
Being gifted and talented covers more than just the ability to succeed in tests and examinations. Some students will do well in examinations but are not necessarily gifted. Whilst others, who are gifted, may underachieve for a variety of reasons. The definition of gifted/talented students at Traill International School is based on potential as well as levels of achievement.
We recognize and celebrate the following gifted and talented students at Traill, who have excelled in different areas. They are also examples of what commitment and perseverance can bring to achieving your life’s aspirations.
