About this course
Our STEM course is a project-based course. In project-based learning, students learn and develop products for real world application thought engagement with sustained and independent enquiry.
PBL courses focus on: –
This course is suitable for learners at KS3. Students will experience first-hand how knowledge gained in their science and maths studies can be applied to real-world problem solving. The course aims to deepen students’ understanding of the four subjects and the links between them, as well as encouraging their curiosity and ingenuity.
There are some ‘micro-projects,’ which introduce a concept and quickly require students to think ‘on their feet,’ applying what they have learned previously in science or maths to solve a problem. Longer projects last for one term and students are assessed on skills developed in the following areas:
Critical and courageous thinking
Student progress is measured by both formative and summative assessments. Formative assessments take place regularly and in a variety of formats ranging from group discussions and collaboration, written tasks, quizzes, presentations and making activities. Students complete one summative assessment each term in which they are required to demonstrate their understanding of the project through their own research, investigations, solutions and designs.
We have several fee packages and options, with differing levels of commitment to suit most circumstances. In most cases parents have the option to pay in instalments, spreading the cost of the investment.
