Able, Gifted and Talented

At Ivy Bank we want all pupils to reach their full potential.  We aim to ensure that pupils are presented with appropriate stretch and challenge in all subject areas and that they have opportunities in out of school activities related to their gifts and talents.


Buzz Club is for our able, gifted and talented children in KS2. It aims to widen the cultural experience of the children and introduce them to hobbies and interests they might not have encountered before.  We want to create a buzz about learning. 

In the last academic year we took part in philosophy sessions; played chess; debated the EU referendum and refugee crisis; played handball at Macclesfield Academy; painted with a local artist; completed a Google Earth challenge; ate S'mores around a campfire; played Ivy Bank University Challenge; investigated languages; learnt some Cantonese and even insulted each other using Shakespearian insults.
