Sexey’s School together with Castle Cary Primary, Ditcheat Primary, Upton Noble Primary, Bruton Primary and Evercreech Primary, are proud to announce that they have been successful in becoming an ENTHUSE Partnership. As an ENTHUSE Partnership they will gain access to a grant from the STEM Learning and the ENTHUSE Charitable Trust over the next two years to help raise the profile of STEM-related subjects in their schools.
ENTHUSE Partnerships bring schools and colleges together to work collaboratively and are designed to inspire young people to engage with STEM subjects and STEM-related careers. The partnerships have significant benefits for teachers, young people, and employers – transforming both the educational culture around STEM in schools and young people’s achievement and aspirations. Schools and colleges taking part receive access to continued professional development, leading educational resources, STEM Ambassadors and teacher placements. With links to local businesses and industry, our learners gain a greater understanding of the STEM industry and possible career paths.
Headteacher of Sexey’s School, Helen Cullen said “We are delighted to be part of this exciting partnership and are looking forward to working with STEM learning, the ENTHUSE Partnership team and colleagues from local primary schools to bring high-quality teaching and learning and STEM related opportunities to our pupils.”
