The teaching of STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) is an intrinsic part of daily life and teaching at Tormead Prep School. 

A cross-curricular approach to planning and delivering our programme of study ensures that the girls have multiple opportunities to understand and apply the skills of inquiry-based learning used in STEM subjects.

This interdisciplinary approach to learning equips girls for a world where the ability to think critically and to evaluate is valued. Visits to museums, visiting speakers, a range of school clubs, such as coding, art, Lego and Science clubs, develop and extend the opportunities for girls to make links between the classroom and the real world.

Curiosity keeps us moving forward, exploring, experimenting, opening new doors

We aim to foster a real love and enthusiasm for STEM and each year, the whole school takes part in Inquisitor Week. Through visiting groups, speakers, activities and lessons, the emphasis is on developing further knowledge and understanding of STEM skills.
