    Abstract

    This paper reports on the first systematic review of Gifted and Talented Education. Its main aim was to investigate interventions designed to improve the educational achievement of students identified as Gifted and Talented. A systematic literature review method was used for both content analysis and in-depth thematic synthesis of the articles. The review offers tentative corroboration for recent English educational policies that focus support for Gifted and Talented students within mainstream settings. Materials that emphasise personalised, differentiated learning are, therefore, generally well-placed to offer specific guidance.
