To make the most of all the opportunities presented to them throughout their time at Allerton Grange School, our most-able students will be assigned a staff mentor to challenge, coach and encourage them to be the best they can be. They will meet at least once every half term to ensure they are making the most of all the wider enrichment opportunities available to them. It will give each student the opportunity to raise, with their mentor, any concerns or problems they have, and for the mentor to be a bridge between them and their teachers.
The name of this group of students is Optima, meaning ‘the best’ or ‘being all that you can be’. They will also be involved in a range of enrichment activities, such as our Latin club; the AGS debating society; visits to Russell group universities; and listening to career talks by representatives from various professions; for example, law, medicine, dentistry, engineering, and architecture. They may also have the opportunity to develop their public speaking skills in assemblies and in our local primary schools. In addition, there will be a number of different academic challenges, where they will compete against each other and their counterparts from other schools. To prepare for these competitions, they may be required to undertake extra homework and independent research.
