Abstract

This study examined the educational experiences of students in Wales, at primary and secondary school, and questioned if schools met the needs of gifted students. Some students reported not being challenged at primary school, whilst others reported some challenges at secondary school, but not in every subject. The students indicated that they would like differentiated work in class, and acceleration – study with older, advanced students, being able to attend university classes during the week, and mentorship.
