Welcome to STEM Academy Tech City.
Due to excessive demand before the summer we can offer additional places open enrolment for students not holding offers starts on Tuesday 26th August at 10.00. Do not miss your chance as there are limited places left. STEM Academy delighted with first year results ( see latest news)
STEM Academy Education Trust is now recruiting for a Principal Designate to lead the new STEM Academy Croydon Gateway which is due to open its doors in September 2015. Please see our vacancies page for full details.
We opened our doors this September and were overwhelmed by the number and calibre of students wanting to join STEM Academy. Enrolment was so high we had to lay on additional courses to meet the demand of students wanting to study STEM subjects in one of the most exciting post-16 education programmes on offer in London.
STEM Academy Tech City is London’s first Sixth Form Academy to specialise in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths and we are offering an exciting and unique academic and vocational education for students with a passion for, and a desire to, pursue a career in STEM. We are located at 263-269 City Road, Islington, just off Tech City’s Silicon Roundabout, home to ever increasing numbers of media and high tech companies
Our facilities and resources in the newly refurbished building are state-of-the-art. We have six floors with a floor dedicated to each of the fields within STEM including fully equipped science labs, engineering and computer suites, top class teaching rooms and our unique Career First Academy. Among the additional resources we provide include a free Raspberry Pi ‘bare bones’ computer for every student to learn how to programme and design apps.
All our students have access to an exciting, innovative curriculum and an extensive extracurricular programme across a range of clubs and societies as well as a social calendar of events, outings and activities.
The UK currently faces a critical skills shortage in all STEM industry areas and this, plus the growth of Tech City in East London, means that the demand for a workforce trained in STEM subjects has never been greater. For London based students this is a wonderful opportunity and a key focus at STEM Academy Tech City is on helping our students to progress to top universities as well as directly into the workplace, apprenticeships or entrepreneurship.
