Brilliant Club – Congratulations Year 8 Scholars!

This term, 12 students from Year 8 attended a graduation ceremony at Cardiff University, having successfully completed their ‘Brilliant Club’ academic project.

The Brilliant Club is an award-winning charity that exists to increase the number of pupils from underrepresented backgrounds progressing to highly-selective universities. This is achieved by mobilising the PhD community to share its academic expertise with state schools.

Over a six-week period, our students were taught by PhD tutor, Maria Howland. They completed a challenging assignment at the end of the project, designed to give them an insight into the independent study required at University level.

Students showed real enthusiasm and maturity in their approach to the project and were rewarded with their hard work and commitment by achieving 1st, 2:1 & 2:2 class awards. Congratulations to all our Scholars!
