Cultural Learning Alliance Blog: Developing a STEAM school

Blog from Head Teacher of Aureus School Hannah Wilson on developing a STEAM school.

Read about how Hannah Wison, Head Teacher of a new school in Didcot was determined to retain a balanced curriculum despite the school's position in the middle of two major science parks.

She says it, 'made sense for the school to be designated as a STEM school. However, as an English, Media and Drama specialist who has led the Performing Arts provision in the last few  London schools I have worked in, I felt very strongly that I did not want our vision to result in an unbalanced curriculum and focus on some subjects at the expense of others. I thus re-designated us as a STEAM School. I use the phrase of putting the ‘Arts at the Heart’ of our school.'
