Brilliant Club Programme

TWICKENHAM MP Sir Vince Cable has backed our award-winning The Brilliant Club programme during a visit to the school.

The Liberal Democrat leader chatted with Year 10 and 11 students who had taken part in The Scholars Programme, aimed at getting pupils into highly selective universities.

Under the scheme, bright pupils took part in university style tutorials with PhD tutors before researching and writing their own university style assignments.

Sir Vince said the programme was breaking down barriers by giving students the belief that they can go to highly selective universities.

He said: “I was extremely impressed by the young people I met at Twickenham School today. They are very bright and had some great insights.

“The biggest barrier for people in local state schools going to the top universities is belief. They have the talent and the intelligence and they are clearly well taught.

“For some of them, like me, they will be the rst people in their family to go to university, and so programmes like this are fantastic at breaking down barriers.”

Our headteacher Assal Ruse said: “The Brilliant Club has been wonderful at raising the expectations and aspirations of our pupils.

“I work in a school with students with huge amounts of potential, students who have the ability to get into the top universities.

“Our job is to harness that talent and give them the belief that they can achieve whatever they want, they have the ability to do that.”

Dr Chris Wilson, CEO of The Brilliant Club, said: “In Britain today, there’s an entrenched link between a young person’s background and their chance of education success.

“The Scholars Programme helps pupils develop the knowledge and skills necessary to ful l their academic

potential and secure places at highly- selective universities.
