Turing House

Science & Engineering

At Turing House there is a special focus on Science & Engineering; subjects that have been identified by the government, business and educationalists as being vitally important to the 21st century economy and job opportunities for young people.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education creates critical thinkers and increases science literacy. It helps students to be curious, ask questions, and make connections as to why the world exists as it does. It equips students with the skills and competencies they will need in future life.  We understand that inspiring and engaging students in these subjects is critical and that’s why we will employ outstanding teachers with a range of experience, committed to STEM education.

We are lucky to have some inspirational groups with outstanding education outreach programmes in our area. We are creating links with the National Physical Laboratory in nearby Teddington which has a strong education programme. We utilise local STEMNET (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Network) resources, and are building links with major local employers in the science and engineering sector, such as BP. We intend to raise our students’ awareness of, and involvement in, local environmental projects and are enthusiastic participants in national STEM education projects such as the EEP Robotics Challenge, Salters Science FestivalLeaders Award, the National Cipher Challenge, the Ultimate STEM Challenge, the UKMT Maths Challenge, the Space to Earth Challenge and more.  Keep an eye on our newsletters for recent activities. 

These links and projects enable us to enhance our core STEM curriculum with exciting and inspiring activities for our students including practical workshops, design challenges and field trips. We anticipate that in the future students will have opportunities to develop their Science Communication skills, sharing their enthusiasm for STEM through links with local primary schools.

We believe the skills developed through studying STEM subjects – problem solving; innovation; logical thinking; collaboration - will benefit all students in whatever career path they choose.
