The school supports gifted, able and talented students

For academically talented pupils who want to use and build on their talents, special support plans are offered at the school in the frame of the Talent Support Programme.
Those pupils, who learn fast and enjoy learning, should have the chance to deepen their talents above what is offered through the regular timetable.
The specific courses and activities offered are very varied and are always planned to fit the individual pupil, in direct cooperation with the pupils themselves and in many cases also their parents. This may lead to independent research projects,
organisational tasks, the learning of an extra language (where the timetable would make the pupil choose one), or the development of new concepts, so that the regular lessons still remain efficient and interesting for these faster learners.
