At Sir John Heron the needs of the More Able children are met in many ways through exciting and challenging lessons, after school clubs and school trips. We have our own specialized sports and music coaches that deliver high quality specialist provision to our pupils.
Our More Able Year 6 Children also take part in the Brilliant club. The children work with PhD students and attend university-style tutorials, which develop the knowledge, skills and ambition that help the pupils to secure places at top universities in the future. At the end of the course the children graduate from the Brilliant club, after writing a 1000 word dissertation. In the 2015-16 and 2016-17 academic years, the Brilliant Club graduated from the University of Cambridge, whilst in 2017-18, children graduated from Oxford University.
