What is the Brilliant Club?

 

At St. Francis we are happy to be partnered with the "Brilliant Club" in affiliation with the Scholars Programme. This is a programme we run for some of our Year 5 children. 

 

The Scholars Programme places PhD researchers in schools to deliver a programme of university-style tutorials, which are supplemented by two university trips. This gives our children an insight into university style teaching, in which they will complete multiple homework assignments as well as a final project at the end of the programme, using their own research skills and knowledge gained from the in-school tutorials.

 

Below you will find a range of online resources to go alongside the programme, as well as activities you can complete at home as part of your Brilliant Club experience, to further your knowledge and research skills.
