The Scholars Programme

We work with state schools throughout England, Scotland and Wales, with pupils aged 10 to 18. Please take a look at our Information for Schools brochures below for more information about The Scholars Programme for your school, and if you would like to find out more, please email your regional contact.

Our impact

The Brilliant Club recently launched its new five-year strategy, The Path to Outcomes. Coinciding with this, the charity commissioned the Universities and Colleges Application Service (UCAS) to evaluate the impact of its programmes on progression to highly-selective universities.

Have a look at the analysis which found that pupils who completed The Scholars Programme were significantly more likely to progress to a highly-selective university, having made the conditions of their offer including their A-Level grades.

We create impact reports for every school we work with each term. As well as details of the programme, and pupil attendance and attainment in comparison with our regional and national averages, we include details of pupil self-evaluation surveys.

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