About us

Who we are

Potential Plus UK is an independent charity that has been working with families and schools for the benefit of  exceptionally bright young people since we were established in 1967 as the National Association for Gifted Children. Potential Plus UK has been the operating name of the National Association for Gifted Children since 2013.

Throughout the years we have engaged in delivering advice and advocacy services, engagement and inclusion work. With a dedicated staff team and engaged trustees, we operate flexibly to meet the needs of parents, teachers and the young people they support.

Based on our expertise through experience, research and best practice we offer a range of service options to enable parents and teachers to understand, advocate for and improve provision for young people with high learning potential.

Our Vision

Every young person with high learning potential (our preferred description) receives appropriate support and challenge to secure well-being and high attainment with the skills, resilience and confidence to succeed at every stage of their development.



Our culture and values

  • Equity – We aim to provide opportunities and support that are equitable for all by removing barriers and facilitating inclusion.
  • Accessibility and Affordability – We are measured in our charging, provide financial support and accessibility where needed.
  • Continuous Improvement – We monitor, evaluate and apply what we learn in order to improve services and practices.
  • Advice is Research and Experience-Based – We keep up-to-date with developments and best practice, which forms the basis of our information, advice and guidance.
  • Responsive to Rights and Needs of Individuals – We understand that everyone is unique; we provide support that is tailored to the individual.

Equality, diversity and inclusion policy

Young people with high learning potential (our preferred description) exist across all sections of society, regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, disability or class and we work hard to provide services at low cost or fully funded whenever possible.  We plan and co-design services and communications with, and for, our diverse community to best meet their wide range of needs. We continue and embed this approach through policies and procedures for our staff, trustees and volunteers.
