The Brilliant Club is a charity that exists to widen access to highly-selective universities for pupils from under-represented groups. The charity does this by recruiting, training and placing doctoral and postdoctoral researchers in non-selective state schools.
PhD tutors deliver programmes of university-style tutorials to small groups of pupils, from Year 6 through to Year 12. The aim is to develop the knowledge, skills and ambition that help those pupils to secure places at highly-selective universities. The charity is currently working with nearly 300 schools and colleges in London and the South East, the Midlands, the North West, North East, East of England, South West and South Coast regions.

Identifying and locating grammar schools. Grammar schools are located in 36 English local authorities. Almost half of these are considered 'selective authorities' (eg Kent and Buckinghamshire), where around one in five local children are selected for grammar school entry based on ability. The others are areas such as Barnet or Kingston, with only a few grammar schools.
As proud parents, we all know our children are unique. They're smarter than anyone else's, funnier, certainly more attractive, better behaved and above all bursting with the kind of talent that would leave Daniel Radcliffe, Jamie Bell and Charlotte Church standing. And for some extraordinary - though totally understandable - reason, everyone but us seems blind to our offspring's God-given artistic gifts.
