With Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) lessons in place from Reception onwards, our girls are ahead of the curve.
Our dedicated STEM Co-ordinator works with each year group for one afternoon a week on a specific STEM-related topic, over a half term.
Projects start in practical Science lessons and then, in later sessions, girls draw on concepts learned and apply their understanding to design to construct something related to their topic. In Design and Technology, pupils identify a need, plan and develop ideas that can eventually become systems and products. All the skills that the innovators of tomorrow will need.
We make STEM engaging and fun; from outings to Cambridge's famous Mathematical Bridge to ponder engineering, to trips to BT Headquarters to meet life-sized industrial robots and learn to code, plus visits to the Institute of Astronomy and The National Space Centre.
Our approach works, with girls triumphing in the 'RoboCup Junior' Championships, where they also gained valuable skills such as teamwork, concentration and perseverance.
Learning in an all-girls environment has been shown to increase the number of girls who go on to pursue STEM subjects at university and beyond. Here are some of the stats from the Girls' School Association, showing the uptake of STEM subjects in all-girls schools, compared to girls in co-educational settings:
