Harris Academy St John’s Wood becomes STEM hub for science

Harris Academy St John’s Wood has received an £80,000 award to become a Science Learning Partnership, making it a centre of excellence for STEM learning in the capital.

STEM Learning is a government-funded body that organises Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for science, maths and computing teachers.

The school will now be responsible for the planning and delivery of training sessions for schools in Central & West London – the boroughs of Brent, Camden, Ealing, Hammersmith and Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Richmond Upon Thames and Westminster.

To mark the award, Harris St John’s Wood is holding a launch event after school on Monday 5th July viewable here.

The evening’s guest speakers include: Samantha Green, the school’s Executive Principal, Dr Sam Sims, Lecturer at UCL, and Theo Spalding-McIntosh, Head of Biology at School21.

Harris St John’s Wood is one of the highest-performing schools in a high-performing borough and well-positioned to lead on raising standards across the region. It also has strong specialist subject and logistical support from other schools, teachers and consultants within the Harris Federation, the highest performing large multi-academy trust in the UK.

Ms Green said: “We see this as an opportunity to become a real centre of excellence for STEM. It is about more than just science – we will also deliver training on computing, maths and technology. We look forward to offering a rich and rigorous programme to teachers and technicians across Central and West London.”

The school’s STEM sessions begin in September 2021 and will be a mix of face-to-face and remote sessions plus network meetings.
