Gifted & Talented? Go Above & Beyond!
This year's Above & Beyond competition for Gifted & Talented School Pupils launched last November in our Wessex Arts theatre on campus. Heats take place this month and the final's here at College on 28 January. The theme is 'The Biggest Global Threat' and pupils will team up to explore the fascinating and very current topic.
The competition is open to all Gifted and Talented pupils at our partner schools.
In groups you’ll prepare a short presentation titled: ‘The Biggest Global Threat’.
The competition is based on Alton College’s EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) which is highly valued by Universities as it develops critical thinking, research, planning and reflection.
'Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has'.
