Twelve students from Bexhill Academy have been taking part in the Brilliant Club programme.

The Brilliant Club is an award winning non-profit organisation that exists to widen access to top universities for outstanding pupils.

Taking part were Emily Barr; Rebecca Smart; Jack Warner-Melbourn; Scott Williams; Jacob Betts; Hayley Bullen; Matthew Byrne, Ryan Taylor; Jess Burton; Emma Everett; Rebecca Hunnisett and Emma Marriott.

The students began the program with a trip to Kings College, London, where they had their first of six tutorials with Phd student Brunthan Yoheswaran to introduce them to the project “Keep Cool and Drive”, which investigated the maths and science behind electric motors and how they are designed to work as efficiently as possible.

This year’s cohort of Brilliant Club Scholars and proud parents visited Sussex University on Saturday September 26, to celebrate their achievement and were presented with certificates at a graduation ceremony.

Students had a campus tour with student ambassadors from the University; they attended a lecture about university courses and took part in a study skills workshop. Parents enjoyed a talk from the Brilliant Club about supporting their child.

Miranda Pennington, from Bexhill Academy, said: “Special congratulations must go to Emily Barr; Rebecca Smart; Jack Warner-Melbourn; Scott Williams; Jacob Betts; Hayley Bullen; Matthew Byrne who all received a 1st for their dissertations. Congratulations also to Ryan Taylor; Jess Burton; Emma Everett; Rebecca Hunnisett and Emma Marriott for their excellent efforts and results.

Thanks to Brunthan Yoheswaran for the support he gave the students and the mathematics department for all their help with the project.”
