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.


National Space Centre visit for Year 5 students

Featuring six interactive galleries, the UK’s largest planetarium, and a 42m high Rocket Tower, the award-winning National Space Centre is the perfect setting for Year 5 children to explore as part of their ‘Stargazers’ topic. Feeding into the Imaginative Learning Project (ILP) for the autumn term, pupils will have the opportunity to get involved in lots of interactive play.
