What is STEM?

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. STEM is important because it pervades every part of our lives. Science is everywhere in the world around us. Technology is continuously expanding into every aspect of our lives. Engineering is the basic designs of roads and bridges. Mathematics is in every occupation, every activity we do in our lives. By exposing pupils to STEM and giving them opportunities to explore STEM related concepts, they will develop a passion for it and hopefully pursue a job in a STEM field.

Here in Seven Pillars, we follow the national UK STEM curriculum and we aim to integrate the STEM system in all our core subjects, plus a number of school activities, projects and after school clubs.

STEM Clubs

STEM Clubs are a powerful and enjoyable way to engage our pupils with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects. They ignite an interest in STEM subjects and provide a platform to extend young people's learning.

There are 7 benefits of STEM education:

Fosters ingenuity and creativity

Builds resilience

Encourages experimentation

Encourages teamwork

Encourages technology use

Teaches problem-solving

Encourage adoption

Extracurricular Activities and school clubs

Each year pupils get the chance to join different school clubs. pupils are encouraged to participate in the extracurricular activities of the school. Activities will be held on Thursdays.

A letter will be sent at the beginning of each term to inform our parents with all our school clubs.
