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 syllabuses.
A central pillar of this drive is our Scholars' Programme which seeks to draw together the many strands of opportunity for scholarship open to our most able students.
As we continue to deal with the restrictions and difficulties imposed by Covid19, we would encourage our students to engage with our Academic Enrichment programme, especially the Super Curriculum and the Cultural Capital opportunities we have on offer.
