At Linthorpe Primary School, we run an Enhance and Excel Talent Development programme that provides pupils with opportunities to develop their passions and achieve their fullest potential. Carefully crafted experiences and opportunities engage, challenge and develop the strengths of nominated pupils.

Visits to the Northern Art Gallery, RSPB Saltholme and Teesside Archives, our sports Excellence Training programme as well as DT and science workshops at our partner school, all give our pupils the opportunity to develop their talents in and across subject disciplines.


The achievements of our talented pupils are showcased and celebrated in our whole school assemblies. Our annual musical theatre performance at our partner secondary school and sporting competitions and festivals also provide opportunities to build self-esteem and enable pupils to showcase their gifts.

This work supports all pupils to develop character, talent, their passions, resilience, confidence and independence regardless of background.
