This website was created for schools in the Brighton & Hove 'Excellence in Cities' cluster working with 'Gifted & Talented'  children aged 9-12 during the period 2004-6. The site continues to attract many visitors and the G&T News and Resources sections are regularly updated. G&TWISE has reviewed this website as follows:
"
...examples of good practice that have taken place in local schools, accompanied by excellent pictorial records and video clips...This site is valuable, not just for the Excellence in Cities schools in Brighton and Hove. Its overall content will assist in reviewing  policy and practice for G&T provision and support through the wealth of suggested resources."
