Charity number


The Brilliant Club exists to increase the number of pupils from underrepresented backgrounds progressing to highly selective universities.

We do this by mobilising the PhD community to share its academic expertise with state schools.

In pursuit of our mission, The Brilliant Club runs two core programmes; The Scholars Programme and Researchers in Schools.

The Scholars Programme

The Scholars Programme recruits, trains and places doctoral and postdoctoral researchers in schools to deliver programmes of university-style tutorials, which are supplemented by two university trips.

Researchers in Schools (RIS)

Researchers in Schools recruits PhD graduates, places them as trainee teachers in schools and supports them to develop as excellent teachers and research leaders committed to closing the gap in attainment and university access.
