Brilliant Club graduation event
The Brilliant Club aims to widen participation at the best universities in the country. 10 students have participated in weekly university-style tutorials at the academy with a PhD student – culminating with a 2000 word assignment on nuclear power and safety.
Three of our Year 9 Brilliant Club cohort and their parents and carers attended a graduation ceremony at the University of Manchester. We had an inspirational tour of the campus taking in the sights before taking our seats in a world class lecture theatre containing hundreds of students, parents and carers, and other stakeholders.
Our students showed immense resilience standing in front a large audience to collect their certificates and represented the academy with distinction. Also they showed massive commitment by attending as we arrived back at the academy at 8.30pm.
