Academic Extension

Meeting the needs of all students is a priority of The Springfield Anglican College. We are committed to high-quality learning opportunities and for all students to realise their potential, talents and skills. To facilitate this goal, students, parents and staff are supported to identify student needs, and provide access to teaching, learning and program opportunities that meet their unique learning requirements.

The Springfield Anglican College recognises the diverse learning needs of high ability students’ and provides environments to maximise their learning outcomes as well as support their social and emotional development. Teaching and learning programs are developed to employ grouping strategies, appropriate differentiation strategies for high ability learners, extension, and enrichment of learning within the classroom and through an extensive student life program.

TSAC is committed to ongoing staff professional development in curriculum differentiation and strategies to support diverse learning needs, including those of high ability and exceptional learners. Students may also be provided with opportunities to be grouped with like-minded peers to develop both their intellectual potential, and to support their social and emotional development.

Learning options that have been shown to be effective for high ability students include::

  • Extending and enriching content
  • Curriculum and assessment differentiation
  • Flexible grouping strategies
  • Compacting of curriculum content
  • In-depth study of an interest area
  • Project-based learning (PBL) environments
  • Open-ended problem solving and activities that promote critical and creative thinking
