STEAM Learning

We are excited to tell you about our new STEAM Cabin which will be used for Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, Maths lessons. Through successful fundraising, we have created a facility that will improve ‘STEAM’ learning and inspire pupils to succeed in these important subjects. 

STEAM education produces a whole host of benefits, such as developing soft skills (creativity, problem-solving, collaboration), increasing engagement and motivation and personalising the learning experience.

On Wednesday 1st February 2023, our cabin was opened by our Chair of Governors, Ed Bramley-Harker. We were also very pleased to welcome to the event, some of those who donated very generously to the project including, Urenco Limited, Stoke Park, Garfield Weston Foundation, Stoke Poges Parish Council and our PTA. Additionally, we would like to extend our sincere thanks to Tesco Community Grant, Buckinghamshire Lottery, Mobbs Memorial Trust Limited, our staff, pupils and families for their generous donations.
