What is STEM?

These pages are here to provide information for anyone who is considering a STEM related career, who is already involved in a STEM activity or who just wants to find out a bit more about what STEM has to offer both within Toot Hill and beyond.
So what is STEM?
STEM stands for:
All these subjects have a lot in common and while we separate them on the school curriculum, they cannot be separated in the same way when it comes to the world of work, further study or careers guidance.
Therefore at Toot Hill we are committed to providing the opportunities and guidance required so that students who have an interest in STEM subjects are not just given the right advice, but have opportunities to enrich their education beyond the classroom and to enable them to stand out from the crowd when pursuing STEM pathways after they leave Toot Hill.
