Able and Ambitious 

"students are not innately gifted or talented and that effort is a key characteristic of being a high achiever"

Able and Ambitious captures the idea that some students are performing at a level over and above expectations in a certain area, but that this situation is flexible depending upon effort. Able and Ambitious students have to work hard to maintain this position, while other students can join the Able and Ambitious programme through improving their performance throughout the year.
