This term, 27 students from Year 10 and 11 attended a graduation ceremony at The University of Warwick, having successfully completed their ‘Brilliant Club’ academic project.  The Brilliant Club is an organisation which aims to enable more young people to attend top universities.  Over a six-week period, Heartlands students were taught by an academic tutor in a specific area of expertise.  They completed a challenging assignment at the end of the project, designed to give them an insight into the independent study required at University level.  This year’s topics have varied from research into Cancer treatment, Aircraft Safety and Philosophy.  Students have shown real enthusiasm and maturity in their approach to the project and we hope that the visit to Warwick University will inspire and encourage them to aim high in the future.
