We encourage Gordon's students to develop an approach to study which gives them the will and capacity to continue learning throughout their lives. Whilst on the journey to Sixth Form and beyond students should encounter learning that is increasingly challenging and teachers should encourage them to develop scholarship in their preferred subjects, rather than simply restricting their thinking to the demand of published syllabi.
A central pillar of this drive is our Academic Scholars Programme which seeks to draw together the many strands of opportunity for scholarship open to our most able students.
Students are urged to engage with our Academic Enrichment programme and the Cultural Capital opportunities we have on offer.
