Students Who May Wish To Apply
In the past these courses have proved very successful for a range of students:
• High Potential and/or gifted students
• Gifted underachievers
• Students of well above average abilities with a special interest.
The majority of students applying have been nominated by their schools. However, if you believe that your child is in one of the above categories and has not received a form, or is a sibling of a past participant, please contact the MindQuest program. If your child has a physical or learning disability or medical condition please make sure that you inform us in the medical section on the application form.

Your child will participate in one course for the weekend. Please choose carefully and only put down those courses that your child would like to attend.
Advanced placement on our courses (e.g., a year 2 student participating in a course for years 3-4) are available for outstanding students. Contact MindQuest.
