STEM Events Series

What is STEM?

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) jobs are expected to grow at double the rate of other occupations, creating over 14 million jobs between now and 2023.

The top most well-paid graduate jobs are in the STEM industry. And yet uptake of STEM subjects at A-level and university nationally remains low and male-dominated, with only 12% of students studying STEM subjects at university being women and only 3% of them entering a STEM-based career. 

Through a programme of  STEM activities delivered through lessons, activities, trips, lectures and competitions, students throughout the entire school, from nursery to A-level, have the opportunity to be inspired and to learn more about these subjects and careers they lead to.

Our STEM events are ever-evolving and ever-changing,  see below a full list and check back regularly for updates.

KS4: Science Lecture Competition

New to 2019

After the success of the Year 12 Science Lecture Competition in 2018, the Science department are now running a similar event for students in Year 10 and 11.

Students will be given the opportunity to research and present a short talk on an area of science.

The final presentation will be in front of their peers in November.
