Young people at Westminster City School have been honoured for their success and achievement as part of an award-winning extra-curricular programme.

This academic year has seen members of both Year 8 and Year 12 take part in The Brilliant Club, which prepares and encourages young people to apply to top universities in the future. Our Year 12 students have undertaken a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) project through The Brilliant Club, while some of our Year 8 pupils have enjoyed further study in history, looking at the French revolution.

During Lent term 2021, our Year 12 students worked with a PhD tutor from The Brilliant Club on the topic: 'The Most Important Picture of Your Life? Diagnosing Heart Disease Before Birth'. All carried out the final assignment and achieved the following grades:

  • Karan S 2.1

  • Cenk G 2.2
  • Fatih G 2.2
  • Michael O 2.2
  • McGeorge U 2.2

Taking part were Tetteh MA, Antoine S, Andi P, Kavitharen V, Thomas M, Saeed RC, Jonathon K, Fareed S, Ademola A, Elias C and Antoine S.

A UK-wide charity, The Brilliant Club, enables young people at non-selective state schools to experience university-style learning, helping them develop the skills, knowledge and confidence needed to secure a place at a highly-selective university in the future. Participants take part in placements, with university-style tutoring by doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, and complete a final assignment that is marked and moderated using university grades.
