Encompassing Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, whilst interweaving other cross curricular links, STEM is an exciting enhancement of our curriculum at Acklam Grange School. STEM brings new opportunities, inspires creativity and empowers students to shape their own destiny and develop employment skills for the future.

85% of employers will be looking for their future employees to have a STEM based qualification. STEM is key to our students' learning through curriculum application across STEM subject areas, enrichment days and events and extra-curricular opportunities. 

STEM is important for all students at every stage of their school careeer. Activities are differentiated and personalised and open up a whole new world of ideas which some students may have not otherwise considered. 

Students get involved in STEM activities in a number of ways, experiencing learning beyond the classroom and stepping outside the norm. Demonstrations from famous television personalities, visitors from the animal world and even an experience in a mobile planetarium have all inspired and enthused students. 

Our local heritage, multiculturalism and the future of our town feature strongly in our STEM provision. A speed dating style event with people from local industry allowed our students to find out about potential career opportunities first hand.
