The Brilliant Club


The Eastwood Scholars Programme is an academic programme run jointly by The Eastwood Academy and The Brilliant Club, an organisation which aims to widen access to university.

In 2020, the programme involved a university visit, numerous seminar sessions, and culminated with the pupils having to write a 2,000 word dissertation. Despite it being on an incredibly complex topic, and marked using A-Level grading criteria, ten of the twelve pupils achieved a 2:1 or a 1st.
