Thomas Estley Community College


Most Able

At Thomas Estley we recognise the importance of providing for our more able students.  We offer appropriate academic challenge within the classroom using a variety of strategies such as

  • Differentiation – an over-used term, it means creating something to extend the child in your class; richer or more challenging tasks
  • Teacher-student matching – matching personalities as well as learning styles
  • Mentoring/cross age tutoring – matching younger or older students with similar interests/abilities to enhance learning of both

For more information contact Luke Hillman

  • Independent Negotiated Programs – student interest and skills determine the scale and scope of the project, negotiated with staff regarding resources, etc
  • Competitions – individual, team, internal, external
  • Visits to Universities and Colleges
Built by our bare hands.
