We offer intellectually challenging extension activities for more able students aged 8 – 14. Our research-driven programme has two main components:

The Argument Club

A weekly tutor-led online debating club which is designed to increase your child’s critical thinking skills (argument and reasoning). Each week, we have a new debate, during which your child has a chance to develop critical thinking skills through 'dialogic argumentation'.

Holiday Book Blubs

Tutor-led Book Clubs offer an opportunity for confident and able readers to come together online, to explore thought-provoking and award winning novels.

The learning objectives are to gain a deep understanding of the novel, to develop the skills of critical thinking (argument, reasoning and debate), collaboration, critical reading, dialogic & written argumentation, and to increase intellectual confidence, metacognition and motivation for learning.
