The Day at Nexus

On the days that students from the Gifted Programme spend entirely at Nexus, the day begins with a tutorial programme based on British values and the important skills of resilience, enquiry and collaboration.


Lessons which stretch the students well beyond the national curriculum, take place during the day.
