SHINE with Canford School


Canford School lead the national SHINE programme for gifted and talented children in the local area.  Pupils from three local schools go to Canford for some 'Serious Fun on Saturdays' – a series of workshops and lessons in all disciplines of sciences, humanities, languages and the creative arts, allowing every pupil to experience and cultivate a deeper understanding of these different areas of knowledge.

At the end of the Easter Term, pupils perform a celebratory assembly of what they have learnt for staff at their schools, before a final rendition in the Long Gallery for parents and friends.  Each pupil is given a specially bound copy of the book which was used as a base for the lessons.
