Potential Plus UK (the operating name of The National
Association for Gifted Children) is a charity that supports
the social, emotional and learning needs of children with
high learning potential* of all ages and backgrounds.
This includes children who have been identified as
Academically More Able within the school setting
who have the potential to achieve in a wide range of
academic subjects, the arts or leadership, those who are
Dual and Multiple Exceptional (high ability coupled with a
disability or learning difficulty) and the profoundly gifted.
Established in 1967, we provide parents, carers and
professionals with the confidence and tools they need
to help these children thrive. We give them support and
specialist advice covering a wide range of issues such as lack
of self esteem, underachievement or challenging behaviour.
In addition, we provide opportunities for fun, friendship
and challenge outside the classroom.
Most importantly, we celebrate the achievements and
potential of these amazing children.
Our aim is to enable every child with high learning potential
to grow in confidence, thrive and achieve fulfilment.
