The Key Stage 3 Programmes of Study are now on Moodle, in the High School Parents' Handbook - so that parents can see what their son/daughter will be studying in each subject as we move through the year (The Art Programme of Study is shown above as an example). The Key Stage 4/IGCSE and Key Stage 5/IB Programmes of Study will also be available by the end of this week, following final adjustments reflecting our review of last year’s IGCSE and IB results.
On Friday last week, our new STEAM Team, made up of a group of Year 13 students, launched our first St Andrews STEAM EXPO:
The STEAM EXPO is an alternative to a typical Science Fair that allows students to explore a wider range of areas of studies other than just the sciences - STEAM is an abbreviation of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths. Students in Years 7 to 10 are encouraged to use their creativity to create a project to spread their ideas and show their love of and interest in education and knowledge by incorporating different aspects of STEAM along with embracing their personal interest. Students can collaborate with friends to come up with ideas and incorporate these ideas into their project, to present to the rest of the High School in the Atrium at lunchtime on Friday 6th October. To Apply for the STEAM EXPO, teams need to fill in an application form, that has been e-mailed to all High School students, and e-mail it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday 13th September.
