High Attainers and Achievers

High Attainers and Achievers provision at TGSG:

At The Green School for Girls, we aim to inspire and nurture every student in a challenging and stimulating environment so they excel and fulfil their potential:

High Attaining students who demonstrate  the potential to achieve at the highest level are identified from data and comprise of the top 10% in each year group.

High Achievers are students whose attainment is above expectation; these students will vary from subject to subject and are identified via a list of subject-specific criteria.

We firmly believe that all students have the potential to achieve highly and to be successful in their endeavours. Students who are identified as either being High Attaining and/or High Achieving may need specific support and guidance in maximising this potential; we need to ensure that we are providing the students with a challenging and inspirational environment that will enable these students to develop their independence, resilience and love for learning.
