Along with a number of successful Thurrock schools we are now participating in a university connection project sometimes referred to as "The Brilliant Club". Children go on a visit to a university and are then assigned a university graduate working towards a doctorate, in other words, a PhD student, to guide them in completing a set project. Children are selected for their academic potential and ability for this in the same way as children representing the school in football or running or chosen for their sporting ability. If the project is successful we hope to continue and include more children. The aim of the project is both to engage high level university students with teaching and to inspire children to think about going to one of the country's top universities.
