Comprehensive Schools fail the Brightest pupils?

In many areas the only choice for parents is the Local Comprehensive. A recent Ofsted report has suggested that in many of these schools the pupils who are identified as brighter by their Primary school are failing to reach their potential. As Education budgets become stretched, and teachers struggle to support a range of abilities in the classroom is there a tendency for lessons to focus on the average rather than the exceptional?

Gold Medal Tuition provides parents with the opportunity to tailor support for their Children to ensure that they reach their full potential. Where the home work set by Schools is not challenging for pupils, our Tutors will ensure that pupils get the most from their work.
