The Brilliant Club for pupils
We offer pupils comprehensive support including challenging tutorials and targeted information, advice and guidance. This is the Scholars Programme.
The Scholars Programme is designed to raise awareness of higher education as well as aspiration to attend a highly selective university.
Completing university-style assignments develops the higher order thinking skills that help to boost attainment in exams.
How it works
University Launch Trip
Each programme begins with a Launch Trip held at a highly selective university, including information, advice and guidance sessions and a campus tour.
This is then followed by a series of five in-school tutorials that lead to the completion of university-style assignments.
University Graduation Event
Pupils that pass the final assignment are invited to attend a graduation event at a highly selective university.
“The university-style tutorials I completed with The Brilliant Club in Year 12 really gave me clarity that I wanted to study English at university. I believe it was the experience I gained from talking about literature in these sessions that aided me in getting an offer to study at Cambridge.”
