As part of the schools' More Able and Talented (MAT) programme, twelve Treorchy Comprehensive School Year 9 pupils graduated from the Brilliant Club Scholars Programme. This is a programme designed to support pupils to develop skills and knowledge to make ambitious and successful applications to universities. At the same time the pupils developed their academic skills to support their school work day to day. The pupils were all required to write a 2000 word essay on the topic “Government’s Cinderella: Financing the Public Health Sector in Kenya” which was marked at degree level which all pupils passed with flying colours. Eleven of the twelve pupils received 2:1 grades and parents joined the pupils at Cardiff University to celebrate in the success and to witness a study skills session. They also got the opportunity to talk to students talking about their experiences at Cardiff University and also take part in the graduation ceremony.

The evening will begin at 6pm in the main hall at the school. There will the opportunity for parents to speak with members of staff and to ask questions about the school.
