KESWICK School has been recognised for its work with gifted and talented students.
Keswick is now one of 60 gifted and talented lead schools in the country, providing courses to students through the Young, Gifted and Talented academy as well as developing programmes to work with teachers and students and partner schools.
Fifteen year 10 students from Keswick School will be starting work on Open University Courses at degree level as part of the school’s developments in the provision for gifted and talented students.
The students will study areas outside the conventional curriculum such as medicine, forensic science, the web and design and creative writing.
The Open University co-ordinator for the courses, Stan Aspinall, said on a recent visit to Keswick that he was impressed at the enthusiasm of the students at the school, all of whom had shown maturity and commitment in completing their applications for the programme.
