Gifted and Talented

Gifted and Talented Students

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 our partnership 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 many opportunities offered such as Canta Math, Selwyn Drama Festival and the SGCNZ University of Otago Sheilah Winn Shakespeare Festival, junior choir, the voice with soul group and filmmaking competition.

We are proud to be a diverse, friendly school and a place where the needs of each individual student are at the forefront of everything we do. We are proud to be a school where all students can make their mark and set their direction for life after secondary school.
