Most Able & Talented

Welcome to the Most Able and Talented page of Audenshaw School.  This page will endeavour to outline the Most Able and Talented programme at Audenshaw School, showcase the successes of our students and offer guidance on how you can help your child to achieve. The focus of the Most Able and Talented programme is to create a ‘thirst for knowledge’ amongst the students and the aspiration to go into further education and achieve the qualifications that our students deserve.  With that in mind, below is a calendar of Most Able and Talented events that will be regularly updated for your information. Another aspect of the More Able and Talented programme is assisting students in exam preparation, and as the GCSE exams are fast approaching, the Most Able and Talented of year 11 are now participating in Mentoring sessions every two weeks, which will focus on study and revision skills as well as a question and answer session with some of the curriculum leaders on how to achieve the A/A* grades in those subjects.  This is an invaluable opportunity for students to gain confidence in their preparations for their GCSE’s. Audenshaw School is also known for the high number of students that go on to study at Oxford and Cambridge and in order to make that opportunity more accessible, an Oxbridge and Medicine Pathway has been set up to identify students in Key Stage Four and Five and offer targeted support and enrichment opportunities through our links with Sidney Sussex College Cambridge and Corpus Christie College Oxford. This is an exciting time for the Most Able and Talented students at Audenshaw School and through the hard work and enthusiasm of the students, it is sure to be a successful end to the academic year.
