Brilliant Club - Scholars Programme
This academic year the academy will support 36 students (12 per term) to enrol on the Scholars Programme with a PhD lecturer. During the autumn term 12 year 9 students are studying world war 1.
The academy fully funds the programme meaning it is free to students.
This is a programme designed to support students to develop skills and knowledge to make ambitious and successful applications to universities, should that be what they decide they want to do. At the same time, students will be developing great academic skills to support their school work day to day.
Last year, The Brilliant Club worked with over 12,000 students across the UK and in an independent evaluation of the programme’s impact, UCAS found taking part made it “significantly more likely” students would progress to a highly-selective university compared to a control group of pupils with matched characteristics.
Students enrolled on The Scholars Programme work with a PhD researcher on a university style module, based on the researcher's world-leading expertise. The programmes are pitched at a key stage above where students are currently studying and are designed to develop pupils' written and verbal communication, critical thinking and metacognition, through exciting, supra-curricular content.
As well as studying with a PhD researcher, students will attend two leading universities to get a taste of university life and to launch and graduate from the programme.
