Brilliant Club Trip

Pudsey Grangefield has recently signed up to be a part of the Scholars Programme, run by the Brilliant Club charity, which aims to widen access to the best universities in the country for state school pupils, especially those from more disadvantaged backgrounds or areas with low rates of progression into Higher Education.

As a result of this, we were delighted to take 12 pupils in year 9 to the launch trip for this programme at the University of Sheffield.  Students had the opportunity for a tour of the campus, as well as a Careers session on making applications to top universities as well as a study skills session.  In addition, they met the PhD tutor they will be working with over the next weeks on their assignment on the topic of Change in the context of education.  This will lead to a 2,000 word project which, if successfully completed, will mean students graduate the programme and will have the opportunity to visit another elite research-based university in the Spring term.

The students were outstanding on the day and were a credit to themselves and the school as a whole, and we look forward to their continued participation in the programme over the next few weeks
