STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) 2015-16

"The school’s science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) curriculum is a notable feature. Pupils have opportunities to be involved in a wide range of activities, both in and beyond school, such as computer coding, taking part in chemistry classes at Brighton University and women in engineering projects. This provision is linked closely to the school’s careers and guidance work and ensures that pupils are well informed about future employment and education routes. A good range of extra-curricular activities help promote pupils’ wider learning." (Ofsted 2016)
