STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
Earlier this year 50 of our year 10 students were fortuate to be involved in a STEM day organised by the Smallpeice Trust.  A number of these students are now involved in their apprenticeship launchpad scheme - more details coming soon.

The Smallpeice trust also run a number of residential courses promoting STEM careers that you may be interested in.  These residential courses are held at UK universities and are:

·         First and foremost, interactive, educational and fun

·         A great way of meeting new people and making new friends, whilst gaining real work experience that accelerates personal development and potential for greater academic achievement

·         Enhance CVs and help UCAS applications really stand out.
