Breaside is named the first school in Bromley to be accredited with the NACE Challenge Award
|Able, Gifted and Talented at Breaside Preparatory School
At Breaside Preparatory School, we recognise that every child deserves appropriate challenges if they are to push at the boundaries of their learning. This means adopting a personalised approach towards providing exciting opportunities both inside and outside the classroom in which all our children can excel and thrive.
Breaside’s aim is to deliver challenge to all children so that they reach their full potential. Alongside this, we are keen to ensure that our most able, gifted and talented children are formally identified then supported and nurtured further through our broad curriculum and wide range of extra-curricular activities.
At Breaside, we work hard to support children gifted and talented in English, Maths, Science, Technology, the Arts and Sport. In addition to differentiated classroom activities, this includes additional challenge days and workshops as well as taking part in national and regional competitions. Additionally, Breaside has links with many local schools and external agencies, ensuring that children are presented with a wealth of opportunities to explore and develop their skills and talents. Recent collaborations have included Maths problem solving contests, computer coding masterclasses and a Breaside Bake Off. Within school, children have the opportunity to develop their leadership and collaboration skills through School Council, the school prefect and ambassador system and regular performances and productions.
Breaside work closely with NACE (National Association for Able Children in Education) which nationally recognises and celebrates those schools which provide the very highest level of challenge for its pupils. NACE helps teachers provide excellent teaching and learning for able, gifted and talented pupils. As of June 2018, NACE has named Breaside the first school in Bromley to be accredited with the NACE Challenge Award meaning that we are now placed in a select group of just 1.6% of schools across the UK who have achieved this prestigious Challenge Award.
The recognition of this award to Breaside Preparatory School is a significant achievement. It recognises the full experience of Breaside pupils across the curriculum both inside and outside the classroom, through specialist taught subjects such as Music and Science, dedicated able, gifted and talented clubs and a wide range of extra-curricular activities.
