Provision for the Academically Most Able (PAMA) caters for small groups of students, around five from each cohort, that staff feel would benefit from an extension to their timetabled lessons. It gives them the opportunity, by way of discussion and debate, to think outside the box, express their opinions openly and have their ideas challenged at a level that is not always possible within the normal curriculum. The groups, often cross phase, meet fortnightly at lunchtimes with Mrs Meredith, supported by colleagues and visiting speakers, and follow a programme that covers philosophy, ethics, current affairs and contemporary issues.

Recent sessions have included:

  • The Value of Art
