Provides a pathway to help educators guide their students through the gauntlets of the gifted, the underpasses of underachievement and the roadblocks to remarkable on their learning journeys.

What makes remarkable students remarkable? Attributes such as resilience, creativity, curiosity and intelligence may come to mind, and we might also add others such as intuition and tenacity - perhaps the very qualities enshrined on a school's website as characterising their student body.

But what has made them what they are? Were they born this way, or did their 'remarkabilities' emerge at primary school? What has school really done to help generate excellence in learning among these students? Such questions may make teachers feel uneasy, prompting them to reflect on the sometimes limiting scope of what is often labelled as 'able and talented provision' in their school.

Robert Massey's argument, however, is that these remarkabilities are there, latent and dormant, in many more students than we might at first acknowledge. In From Able to Remarkable he shares a rich variety of cross-curricular strategies and techniques designed to help teachers unearth these capabilities and signpost a route to the top for every learner on their individual learning journey.

With over two decades' worth of experience as a history teacher, Robert Massey has for the past six years led the high-attainer programme at Bristol Grammar School. He has a particular interest in supporting his colleagues in the provision of stretch and challenge opportunities for more able students. He speaks regularly at education conferences. Robert is based in Bristol in the UK.
