Silver Programme (Most Able Students)

Introduction to the Silver Programme

We are delighted to introduce the Silver Programme that we are rolling out to those Year 8 students who came into Maiden School in Reading with a level 6 in either Maths or English and the Year 7 students who achieved highly in the Key Stage 2 Maths and Reading tests.  This is one strand of our provision for the Most Able students in the school.

The Silver programme provides students with the opportunity to help them become independent high-order learners. We will be holding workshops over the course of the remainder of the school year, which will enable these students to be challenged beyond the classroom and enable them to reach their highest academic potential.

The programmes for Year 7 and Year 8 (2016 -2017) are available by following the links below: 

Year 7 Silver Programme 2016 - 2017

Year 8 Silver Programme 2016 - 2017

The programme for the 2015 -2016 workshops can be found HERE.

We are very pleased to have so many students participating in this programme and we are certain that it will be a very rewarding and enriching experience for them all.

Silver Programme 2015 - 2016 Review

We have come to the end of a very successful Silver Programme. All of our students have worked conscientiously and have enjoyed taking part in this scheme.

The sessions have been very enriching offering plenty of opportunities for the students to broaden their knowledge and to stimulate their minds.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those teachers involved in making this programme so successful. They have given up their free time to share their interests, knowledge and expertise, to provide the students with another extremely rewarding extracurricular activity.
