Abstract: The study presents the concept of developing the research potential among high school students in educational establishments, implementing a full-time school model. This model involves the integrated system of school and additional education. Its implementation reflects the renewal of school education in Russia, represented in the new federal state educational standards for secondary (complete) general education in Russia. Findings from the study of methodology of research capacity development of senior pupils in full-time schools and its experimental implementation, including through its digital support are based on the principles of subjectness and subjectivity. The idea of subjectivity has been supported by the conscious choice of seniors in favour of significant progress in education, connecting the culture and psychology of choice with a blend of courses and creating an individual education programme plan. In accordance with the idea of subjectness the students passed a number of successive levels in performing a number of tasks and using some digital resources and technologies during the experiment. Students mastered particular cognitive strategies at the operating activity level, managed the process of obtaining new knowledge in an independent study at the subjective activity level, practiced self-education demonstrating selective and critical reflective attitude to scientific knowledge at the subjective personal level.
