“The Brilliant Club is an excellent programme that has the potential to transform the UK education system. I have enjoyed my experience tutoring and I am proud to be associated with such a worthwhile cause.”

“The Brilliant Club has helped develop in our students a desire to graduate from a top university. It has acted as the beginning of their journey to this success and has made our young people believe it is possible.”

“The Brilliant Club does a simple but profoundly important thing. It enables some of our best young researchers to apply their skills in schools. Nothing does more to encourage teenagers to go on to university than seeing dynamic university researchers and teachers in action. The Brilliant Club makes that possible.”
Lord Adonis
Former Minister of State for Education
“I love being a teacher because it allows me to inspire young adults and pass on my passion for science to them.”
