Identification and MAG&T register
The most able students in each year group are identified using a combination of CATS scores, exam and tracking data, and KS2 results where applicable. Teacher nominations are also taken into consideration. Once the more able cohort for each year group has been identified they are invited to join the Aspire programme.
The lists are reviewed on a regular basis by the school’s senior leadership team.
Departmental MAG&T registers
Each department has a MAG&T list that is maintained by the Head of Department and the MAG&T subject co-ordinator. This list will be the pupils who excel in that particular subject. These pupils will be tracked and monitored by the departmental co-ordinators in each subject.
