Hornby High School works actively to identify and support Gifted and Talented students. These students may show extraordinary talent in one or a number of different settings. These could include Academic, Cultural, Sporting and Leadership. Referrals to the GATE register can be made by parents, teachers from contributing schools, the students’ current teachers or the students themselves. Our goal is to encourage our GATE students to extend themselves by offering support, guidance and opportunities to use their talents. There are specific GATE events during the year.
