STEM

Welcome to the STEM page for Court Moor School

Court Moor has always been active in supporting the technical strengths of our students.

STEM is a nationwide initiative to get more young people into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

To support this and recognising the importance of these fields to our students, parents and the wider community, Court Moor now as a specialist STEM co-ordinator, in order to maximise the opportunities available for our students and add in some joined up thinking.

If you have any ideas just contact me.
