The Brilliant Club for schools

What we do

We work with non-selective schools in all regions of England and Wales.

Researchers in Schools trains PhD graduates to become full-time classroom teachers in secondary schools across England. Please see the Researchers in Schools website for more information about how your school or SCITT could get involved.

The Scholars Programme places PhD researchers to deliver programmes of academic enrichment to pupils from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 5. Please see our brochure for more information about how The Scholars Programme could work with your school.

Our impact

We ask all pupils to fill out self-evaluation forms at the beginning and end of each Scholars Programme. The percentages shown indicate the number of pupils who ‘agree’ or ‘strongly agree’ with each statement, and demonstrate how this changed.

“I have high-level knowledge that goes beyond the A-Level curriculum”
“I understand in detail how universities work and the key differences between them”
“I can complete my work to a higher standard”
