The Curriculum at Nexus
The percentage of entries receiving the top grades compared to a national average of 25%.
The Gifted Programme at Nexus is selective and applications are open to students as they join the school in Year 7. Students can also apply to join the programme in Year 8 and 9. Students from the Gifted Programme who specialise in the sciences and mathematics will generally join Cornwall School of Maths and Science, which is also specialist provision for the most able, for their VI Form studies.
Students in the Nexus Gifted Programme are members of CSIA and spend some time having lessons on the main campus. The majority of their time, however, is spent on the Nexus campus. Every day they will take part in supervised activities at the Nexus campus as part of the co-curricular programme.
