Membership of The Brilliant Club at The Trafalgar School is open to Year 5 students from our feeder schools. Students are welcomed into school to take part in a programme of Workshops, Masterclasses and Seminars. The transition from primary to secondary school can seem a daunting prospect, with this in mind the aim of the Brilliant Club is to give Year 5 students, over a period of time, the opportunity to become familiar with the community, both academic and social, at Trafalgar – thus eliminating the fear of the unknown. This familiarisation feeds into and supports the outstanding transition programme that we have in place for students moving from Year 6 to Year 7.
In addition, the Brilliant Club gives our School a role in expanding and enhancing the curriculum at primary level and gives its members the opportunity to extend their learning in KS2.
We actively encourage students attending these sessions to practice their newly acquired knowledge by sharing it with the rest of their class when they return to their primary school.
