The Science Faculty has recently moved in to a brand new sustainable building called the Nucleus. It comprises 9 teaching rooms, 2 open learning spaces, a ‘Superlab’ capable of accommodating over 90 pupils at any one time, as well as external teaching spaces. The building facilitates flexible teaching and learning, and is built to meet the requirements of 21st Century education.
The Nucleus forms part of the STEM facilities on the Brougham Hayes Campus. STEM is a cross-curricular discipline comprising Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. It’s value to the UK economy is widely believed to be around £800 billion each year. The Science Faculty are actively involved in providing a new STEM curriculum opportunity called ‘Innovate’. STEM is growing significantly at Hayesfield and many opportunities are being developed. Again, this broadens the curriculum that we offer, and also to demonstrates the links between subjects which is important for the skills needed to enter the workforce.
