Through the National Curriculum for England, our students are exposed to many innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) opportunities. These provide invaluable practical experiences that nourish the skills of creativity, flexibility and collaboration and help our students prepare for the future workplace – for jobs that may not currently exist.
We offer our students the possibility to explore their interests and passions via a wealth of co-curricular activities that include arts and crafts projects, cooking, music, academic extension classes such as language learning, writing support and computer skills, mathematical games and sport. We encourage our students to enrol in at least two activities every term, acquire new skills and abilities, and develop their confidence.
