Curriculum enhancement STEM Club As well as actively engaging our students with practical activities during the lessons, we also run a STEM Club where students have the chance to take part in different scientific investigations. It is designed to have scientific experimentation at the forefront.
Typically, students will carry out a series of planned investigations and communicate their findings to each other in a safe and stimulating environment. Our students are also provided with opportunities to enter nationwide competitions to exercise their abilities in Scientific research.
STEM Club students also have access to the pond area and the allotments as part of their activities program.
Dates of the drop-in sessions will be posted on notice boards throughout the Science department. Year 11 revision sessions Science revision sessions for year 11 are run on a two-week timetable in accordance with school policy. During these times, students will consolidate their learning from lessons.
