The Brilliant Club
The Brilliant Club is an award-winning university access charity that works with schools and universities across the UK. It is a national organisation that helps to encourage children to progress to highly-selective universities.
Students have to attend a number of tutorials with a PhD student and complete an assignment to a level higher than their current key stage and the work is awarded grades in line with university marking (First, 2:1, 2:2, Third and then a pass).
Recently, six students in Year 9 have completed the course and the work they produced was to an A level quality. They all successfully passed their assessments and join only 12 other members of The Brilliant Club at Kingswood Secondary Academy.
Congratulations to Maja Bindis and Blossom Mutch-Logue who were awarded a 2:1 and Weronika Murawska, Mia Anderson, Sarah Lasekan and Olivia Eaton who achieved a 2:2.
This is an amazing achievement considering the restrictions that have been imposed with social distancing and Lockdown. Well done girls. (Feb 2021).
