Achieving excellence in Science, Technologies, Engineering, The Arts and Mathematics is a priority at Southmoor because the capabilities involved in these areas are lifelong skills that our students will go on to use in their adult lives in research, employment and further education. A STEAM approach looks at learning towards a bigger picture of problem solving skills, innovation, creative and critical thinkers who are able to use ever-evolving and changing technologies in a variety of fields. In this approach, the problem solving techniques and thinking along the way is just as, or sometimes more important than, the solution.
