Staff at Albany Academy have been recognised for their commitment to supporting STEM. Science, technology, engineering and maths are undergoing a renaissance in schools and universities across the UK and the STEM Ambassadors organisation aims to increase take up of STEM subjects in colleges and improve student engagement in schools.
Yvonne Baker, Chief Executive of STEM Learning thanked Albany Academy staff for their hard work in raising students’ awareness of career opportunities in STEM subjects and for the many opportunities students receive while studying at Albany.
Peter Mayland, Headteacher said, “It is always gratifying to have our work recognized by experts. Our STEM results continue to improve each year and the opportunities grow. In the past 12 months there have been ambassadors, a robotics club, a science fair, maths mentors, and students attending engineering taster sessions at university. This is on top of our offer of triple science and further maths at GCSE.”
