The STEM department aims to ensure that all students have the opportunity to learn about cutting edge scientific concepts, with an emphasis on independent and hands-on learning.
Students benefit from unrivalled facilities and teaching quality, which will give them the opportunity to learn about cutting edge scientific concepts, with an emphasis on independent and hands-on learning. Using brand new state-of-the-art equipment, students will have the opportunity to work on a variety of STEM related projects,ranging from 3D printing, robotics, forensic science and green screen technology; with a further six projects available for students to complete. At the start of the year, students completed a range of activities designed to build their collaboration and team work skills, which is a key component of the STEM curriculum. They are combining interactive projects with a newly developed online learning platform, which provides students with support and challenge, giving them the opportunity to develop transferable skills that will support their progression in a number of subjects across the school. This is an exciting time for the school, with the STEM curriculum playing a leading role in the schools transition to a modern and thriving academy.
