The Brilliant Club-Tower Hamlets Scholars Programme

The Foundation is pleased to support the Brilliant Club, which exists to increase the number of pupils from under-represented backgrounds that progress to highly-selective universities. The Tower Hamlets Scholars Programme recruits PhD researchers, trains them as university access professionals and places them as tutors in both primary and secondary schools in the borough to deliver academically rigorous programmes to small groups of high potential pupils, with the aim of raising attainment levels at secondary school, and to give pupils the confidence, that progressing to university is a goal within their reach.
