Pupils from each of our academies had a great time the other morning for the STEM launch at City College Plymouth!

We are excited to announce that Discovery Multi Academy Trust is to become a specialist in STEM education. Our three primary academies will be working in collaboration with Babcock and Plymouth City College to become leading academies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

 

This is a great opportunity to provide enriched educational experiences for our children, as well as young people across the city. Learning establishments will work together to improve standards and outcomes for children, as part of a wider community.

 

Children will develop workplace skills to extend their education beyond school, seeing that STEM is relevant in their daily lives. It will  broaden their insight to opportunities available to them, raising aspirations.

 

Over this term, our children will begin to work with our partners as an introduction to STEM whilst we plan its development in more detail. A variety of activities are taking place across our three academies, from STEM clubs to go-kart building. There will be opportunities for the community and parents to share in this and to develop their own learning of STEM. We hope to involve other schools and academies across the city and beyond and we welcome further partners in joining us.

 

We look forward to bringing you news of further developments over the next term. Please click on the link below for our recent press release:
