Brilliant Club

A group of Year 9 students have participated in a project called the Scholars Programme run by the Brilliant Club, a charity set up to increase the number of students from different backgrounds progressing to highly-selective universities. The Scholars programme was delivered in the Autumn term by a PhD tutor from university and the students studied a ‘super-curricular’ topic related to the PhD tutor’s area of expertise. The programme running this year was on the area of contemporary poetry. A group of 12 students were selected for the programme. As part of the programme the students had to complete a university style essay of 2000 words. This was a challenge for some students and they felt a huge sense of achievement when they completed the essay as they had never written such a long piece of work before.

The students also got to visit 2 universities to experience what the environment was like. They visited the University of Bristol and the University of Exeter. During these visits the students toured the campus and met with current undergraduate students at the universities. The final trip to Exeter also included a graduation ceremony celebrating the students’ achievements during the programme. Every student showed an improvement in their writing over the programme and all students achieved at least a 2:2 on their final assignment with 4 students achieving a First.

Well done to all the students on the completion of the Scholars Programme!

‘I really liked the opportunity and how many new things I’ve learnt. I got to discover things I wouldn’t know without it and it’s given me a bigger insight to my future as well as small things like the difference between universities’. Chloe

‘I genuinely enjoyed being a part of the Brilliant Club as I learnt some key skills that I had no clue about before this experience. This will undeniably help me throughout my future education.’ Maisey
