Year 10 Adam said of the honour:

“The dissertation took about two weeks to research and write, and I was helped by a PhD tutor; it was a lot of hard work.  It was mind-boggling to hear it had been published. I didn’t think my work would get that much attention and my family is very proud!”

An ever increasing number of Wellacre students have taken part in the programme from Years 7 to 10, which includes university-style tutorials with a dedicated PhD Tutor, alongside trips and graduation events hosted by various universities.

Each student has to submit a challenging final assignment for which they received university-style grades and certificates.  A Ali The Scholar article.png

The Scholar magazine is the academic journal designed to recognise and showcase outstanding work from students across the UK, by sharing the fantastic academic assignments they produce.

Jade Hanley, Academic Editor of the Scholar, said:

“We are incredibly proud of the hard work that pupils put into their final assignments and feel it is important that they be recognised and applauded! We want to extend our congratulations to Adam and Wellacre Academy for their achievement - competition for entry to The Scholar was fierce, as there were many excellent assignments to choose from.  The article ‘Nuclear Power: Is It Safe?’ is an impressive discussion of an important topic.”

The Brilliant Club Scholars Programme aims to further develop students’ knowledge, skills and confidence to help them secure places at highly selective universities, if they choose to apply in the future.

Adam added:

“It was a great learning experience to be involved in this programme; I learnt a lot about university education and life.  It was really interesting to attend lectures and work with PhD tutors.”
