The importance of developing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) skills in schools has been well documented in the media over recent years but here at UAE South Bank we feel passionately that the confidence and creative mind-set that the Arts engender in our students is equally crucial to their development.
To this end, we are proud to be a STEAM school where cutting edge technology, an exciting Arts curriculum and strong teaching all help our students develop the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to enable them to fulfil their ambitions and make their mark on the world.
Our STEAM curriculum, supported by strong links with our University and business ensures our students are well prepared to thrive in an increasingly competitive, and ever changing job market.
Project based learning
Throughout their time at UAE every student engages in a number of projects in collaboration with others. In these projects the group is presented with a real world problem, often from one of our business and industry partners. The students then have to apply their prior learning, and newly researched knowledge, along with creativity, craft and teamwork skills to develop a solution. By putting their learning into context and giving students an authentic experience where they are responsible for the outcomes we find students are more engaged and better prepared for the world of work.
