Meet our Brilliant Club Graduates
EIGHT Academy students have ‘graduated’ at the University of Nottingham after taking part in the Brilliant Club – Scholars programme.
The Year 10 students were invited to a special graduation event at the University after completing the programme, run by the charity Brilliant Club in a bid to raise aspirations in young people.
At the start of the programme, the group visited Cambridge University and were provided with a mentor (a University of Nottingham PhD student) who provided tutorials and set homework.
All students then completed a final essay – pitched at one Key Stage above their current level – which was marked and given a university grade.
Well done to all students for taking part and completing the programme.
