STEM

“There is nothing I believe in more strongly than getting young people interested in science and engineering, for a better tomorrow, for all humankind” Bill Nye.  

We are fully committed to constructing and implementing a curriculum that is ambitious and designed to give all pupils, particularly disadvantaged pupils and pupils with SEND, the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.

We are equally aware of the potential future requirements of the labour market and making sure that we offer our students the training they require to be competitive in the future. Future careers suggested by research from world economic forum report include:

  • Pharmer
  • Self-driving car mechanic
  • Space miner
  • Climate change reversal specialist
  • Space junk recycler or space tourism guide
  • Data detective
  • Virtual identity defender
  • Virtual teacher
  • Drone manager
  • A.I Business Manager

In anticipation of exciting, futuristic careers, we offer our students a complementary package of STEM subjects leading them ahead of the curve. These include:-

  • Triple science
  • Further maths
  • Statistics
  • Computer Science

British Values, SMSC and Cultural Capital 

As it stands, this area invokes natural questions about the balance of men and women within the STEM workforce. The UK needs 100,000 new graduates in STEM subjects every year until 2020 just to maintain the current employment numbers – encouraging girls to enjoy STEM subjects at an early age is key computers in society, business, the arts, science and engineering; computer science, and data. It also complements our science curriculum.
