Excellence Clusters are intended to tackle entrenched problems of underachievement and social exclusion. The overarching goals are to close the gap between standards in these disadvantaged areas and elsewhere, and to improve the quality of education, especially among the disadvantaged. - Each cluster is expected to provide four learning strands: • provision for gifted and talented pupils • learning support units • mentoring of pupils • one of their own choice to meet the needs identified in the cluster (known as the tailored strand).
