The Centre for Talented Youth, Ireland

Saturday Programmes

Primary School Students

Saturday programmes take place each Autumn (October to December) and Spring (February to April). Courses are available for both 6-7 year olds and 8-12 year olds. Saturday programmes usually run over an eight week period.

The courses are designed to be academically challenging and to allow the students to meet others who share their interests. The depth of material and pace of the courses is somewhat different to what students might be used to in school. However the courses are hugely popular proving that this approach works well.

Only students who have qualified will receive the course brochure appropriate to their age group. We recommend that they choose the course that they are most attracted to having read each of the course descriptions. (For further information on assessment, please click here
