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.

Celebrity Hospital

This is for our Year 11 students.

This fun and interactive activity raises awareness of the huge amount of healthcare professions available to students at University- an area we often see with many queries and misconceptions.

The activity gives students a real scope of what options they have available to them, how they get there, and perhaps even help them identify an area of Health and Social Care they hadn’t previously considered.
