STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths

At the Academy we are integrating rich STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) lessons into each subject area. STEM is more than just renaming regular lessons with a new title, it is about encouraging young people to become the future makers, builders and designers of the world.

Solving real world problems is encouraged by working together in groups, researching ideas and experimenting with the solution. Mistakes are embraced and learnt from and students do not need to be worried about trying something out to see if it works.

Making students aware of the links between subjects and how skills gained in one area can help them in others, will unify their knowledge through practical application.

There are many STEM careers to choose from and the shortage of people in these roles is abundant, making it a fantastic opportunity for future generations.
