Our A Level STEM students are the coders, engineers, scientists, medics and designers of tomorrow.
We believe Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects are very much for girls. In fact, statistics show, that girls in single-sex schools are more likely to study STEM subjects at A Level than their peers in co-educational settings.
From Junior School onwards, STEM is a key aspect of our curriculum. From Raving Robots and Hacksaw Club, to Young Engineers and Gadgeteer Club, there are opportunities for girls of all ages to experience fun and practical STEM workshops, enabling them to see what they can achieve through learning and practising their skills.
Located in the heart of Cambridge (or Silicon Fen) we are fortunate to be surrounded by world-leaders in science, mathematics and technology-based industries. Working collaboratively with some of these companies, we have offered unique opportunities to students interested in this sector, including work placements with companies such as Mott MacDonald and Microsoft Research.
We offer scholarships to individuals who demonstrate excellence in Textiles, STEM, and Design and Enterprise.
In our cutting-edge science laboratories, students enjoy a dynamic and engaging environment in which to explore the sciences.
Both Computer Science and Textiles are a popular A Level choice. Our A Level Textiles students enter national design competitions, such as the London Design Museum Challenges, and our leaver destinations often include Textiles or Fashion studies at prestigious institutions such as the London School of Fashion.
"People should consider programming more, it’s not geeky; it’s fun! Computer Science is where the future is." Hannah B.D. Sixth Form STEM scholar
With a skills-shortage in the UK engineering sector, there is much demand for young women to enter the profession. By introducing our girls to the breadth and creativity of engineering-based activities from Junior School onward, we aim to inspire a new generation of female engineers.
An impressive number of our leavers now opt to pursue studies in Engineering at degree level and beyond.
