The percentage of women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematical (STEM) occupations has increased at a snail’s pace since our school was first founded over 100 years ago. It recently hit the dizzy heights of 13%! 

As a girls’ school hell-bent on ensuring equal opportunity we were pleased to buck that trend last year by encouraging over 45% of our Y13 girls onto STEM related degree courses. 30% is regarded as the critical figure that will make the pursuit of a STEM occupation appear normal for women.


We have achieved this through the development of many exciting STEM opportunities within our school: talks, trips, events, clubs, challenges and competitions. Check out our Twitter Feed below to see what we've been up to!
