I think it depends on what you mean with "slow". As in slow learning or slow acting? 

Because if kids are slow acting/working, then they can be just as smart as the "fastest" kids in the class, just not getting the work done in the same amount of time. Therefore I don't think it's completely necessary, since they would have the same ability to learn the same things in the same lessons. 

Although if you meant slow as in slow learning, I do think it'd be a good idea to perhaps split those kids into a different "set" or "form", like most secondary schools do nowadays, so that all the kids get the right amount of attention and time that they need.

i've got troubled thoughts and a self esteem to match,

They already are o.e In my school there's 4 bands with sets based on that in every year, North being for more able students, whereas East for students who either have difficulty learning or don't learn so fast. I think its a good idea, because it allows more able students to learn the more harder stuff instead of starting from basics, and also allows slower learmers to have the tieme they need to grasp a subject. I think its a good idea.

That's why they have Honors and AP classes. It's for the advanced kids, so they aren't slowed down by the other kids. But if you mean in a class where there's both smart and slow kids, then sure, why not? It would be more individualized that way. The smart and slow kids can each have their needs met.
