Educating children for today is one thing, but preparing them for tomorrow’s jobs gives them a clear path to future workplace success.
What is STEAM?
An acronym for science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics, STEAM is a practical approach that links discrete subjects into a cohesive model. Topics become more relevant and engaging with a firmer connection to real workplace needs.
Making it relevant
Team building and problem solving – demonstrates collaboration as an essential workplace skill. Specialists across disciplines teach the value of working together to solve complex problems.
Innovation and intuition – where creativity and academics collide. This hones the ability to think beyond the expected with pupil-led learning and exploration.
Risk-taking, reflection, review and refinement – show that failure is a valuable part of the process. It’s all about attitude and approach and this process is where growth happens.
Where it fits
STEAM is a timetabled part of our Seniors’ (Year 7 and 8) schedule. For some children, it shines a new light on a multi-disciplinary approach which reframes a subject to give them renewed motivation and confidence.
We also offer plentiful opportunities for younger year groups to get involved – learning these diverse, often hands-on, real-life skills.
