Gifted and Talented Students
What is a gifted student?
Some types of students need special attention due to their high-achieving potential and their high cognitive abilities. These students stand out for their ability to learn to read, their sensitivity, their ability to think quickly and they have high expectations of themselves and others. It is important to detect these students and promote resources, programmes and methods that allow them to develop their capacities and abilities.
The Stellar Programme
The SEK Stellar Programme is a comprehensive programme for gifted high-achievers. We have been running this programme at SEK International Schools for almost 30 years.
Our activities are designed according to the age and evolutionary development of our students as well as their educational needs. The specific educational proposals focus on:
- Enrichment of curricular contents (extensions and curricular adaptations)
- Acceleration, flexibility, always with the authorisation of the Spanish Ministry of Education
- Context enrichment
- The Stellar Programme aims to ensure high-achieving students develop their potential in the company of other children with the same academic talents without missing out on day-to-day interaction with their peers in the normal school environment
The new 20-21 academic year presents new learning perspectives within school and extracurricular environments. Therefore, SEK, and specifically the Stellar Programme, has launched The Excellence Programme, a complementary programme of online enrichment activities, with the primary goal of broadening the horizons of high achieving students in fields that may be of interest to them and that are not usually included in the curriculum.
On the other hand, it expands its geographical scope, allowing students to access from any region or country.
