STEM

Framwellgate School Durham has a wide array of partnerships in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The school hosts the North East regional Science Learning Centre where students are able to gain access to a wide variety of industry partners and world class facilities.

Framwellgate School Durham has developed a variety of positive partnerships with industry and business organisations based around STEM.  The school is extremely proud of the relationships that is has developed with its partners and particularly, the benefits that our students have experienced from these relationships.  Our students have been provided with access to real life working environments, acquiring knowledge, skills and work experience within a number of high profile organisations and providing them with the opportunity to build future careers in the STEM subject areas.

Having access to these relationships inspires students to consider STEM careers for the future and enables them to gain experiences that they may not receive elsewhere.

Enabling students to take part in additional STEM enrichment activities is vital for the development of their communication skills, their initiative and facilitate their motivation to succeed. One of the ways in which this is achieved is by having multiple opportunities for students to take part in external competitions.
