Silicon Roundabout site announced as location for STEM Academy
STEM Academy Tech City, is located at 263-269 City Road in EC1V 1JX, off Tech City’s Silicon Roundabout.
STEM tech city opened its doors to students in September 2013 and offers a unique academic and vocational opportunity to students with a passion for STEM subjects from local communities in Hackney and Islington, as well as those from across London.
The Principal, John O’Shea, who moved from his previous role as Principal of the highly-regarded Islington Sixth Form Consortium (IC6), commented on the new location saying:
“Securing the City Road site for STEM was a hugely exciting development. The STEM vision has always involved being located in East London’s Tech City, creating a direct link with STEM industries and helping to inspire the next generation of STEM graduates. Tech City already represents one of the fastest growing and burgeoning areas of London and I’m confident that our students will thrive from being at the heart of it. I am truly excited by the opportunity to develop STEM Academy into the best STEM Sixth Form in the country, and this announcement brings us one step closer to that goal.”
