Welcome to STEM Sixth Form Academy (STEM6): the place to be for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).
STEM6 is a brand new 16-19 academy offering a unique educational opportunity to students with a passion for STEM subjects from local communities in Hackney, Islington and across London.
Due to open its doors in September 2013*, at 263-269 City Road EC1, off Tech City’s Silicon Roundabout, STEM6 is committed to becoming one of the best post-16 education providers in the capital over the coming years and will be focussed on helping young people to progress to top universities as well as directly into the workplace, apprenticeships or entrepreneurship.
The UK currently faces a critical skills shortage in all STEM industry areas and the growth of Tech City in East London has further increased the demand for a workforce trained in STEM subjects. Through a diverse, innovative curriculum, STEM6 aims to inspire young students in these subjects and meet this skills deficit. It will provide a rigorous education in STEM subjects within a broader academic curriculum.
STEM6 will also offer an exciting and wide-ranging extracurricular programme stretching across a whole variety of clubs and societies and providing regular engagement in music & dance, drama, sport and outdoor activities.
We were delighted to have Google host our recent open day at the prestigious Town Hall suite in the Google Headquarters, Soho. Find out more here. If you want to attend STEM Academy’s next Open Day you can register your interest here.
