STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
At Crestwood Park, we embrace the principles of STEM learning. We want our pupils to be independent thinkers, who find answers for themselves. We want them to be curious and ask questions. We want them to make connections between different disciplines and realise that we can work in collaboration to reach a common goal. We want our children to engage in their learning and be inspired by what they do at school to reach their full potential.
