Gifted & Talented

At Cotswold School, we strive to allow all students to reach their academic, physical, social and emotional best. Our Gifted and Talented program is an integral component in our responsibility to educate and allow all students to reach their potential. 

Gifted Students are those with the potential to achieve at an exceptional level in one or more domains of ability.

Talented students are those who are performing at an exceptional level in one or more areas of endeavour.
