STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths Information


National Overview: ‘The UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES) suggests that the majority of jobs in the 21st century will require high levels of science and technology expertise, possibly 58% of newly created jobs.  More people from all backgrounds should be encouraged to take up STEM subjects to expand and improve skills in the UK.’ (

Therefore STEM subjects will not only make students more employable in the future but also offer them more employment options in our ever changing world. Here at Walton-le-Dale we offer a variety of STEM related subjects in addition to the core subjects but also numerous opportunities to explore STEM careers and links to curriculum.
