The school supports gifted, able and talented students

FFBIS' Enrichment Programme was created to address the needs and interests of gifted and talented students ready for more intensive, challenging learning experiences. With guidance and support, students’ curiosity and natural inclination towards inquiry is fostered as they investigate and explore new subject matter or delve into areas of the curriculum in much greater depth. Students become more aware of their thinking strategies and learn to wield these as tools towards investigation, problem-solving and further inquiry be it in History, Geography or Art.

Enrichment classes take place on Tuesdays from 8.15-11.35 am and are led by teachers with extensive experience in this field or by teachers specially trained to support gifted and talented students.
