The Challenger Programme was set up by Northside Partnership in 1995. It provides structured supports for students and their parents from 6th class to 6th year to help students:

  • Transfer from 6th class into secondary school 
  • Prepare for their Junior Certificate 
  • Complete their Leaving Certificate

Every year we provide support to a total of 200 students from our five partner schools. As students complete their secondary education we are able to offer 40 new students a place on the programme each year. Challenger parents are offered a further education programme together with the supports provided to their children.
