Claremont High School Academy



Welcome to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) section. STEM education is about critical thinking and problem-solving; through developing these essential skills, teachers at Claremont aspire to prepare young people from different socio-economic backgrounds, to expand their minds to become inventors, scientists, researchers, and future change makers. Here you can find out about the opportunities that Claremont students have to prepare them for careers in these essential areas.

STEM Success

Urban Food Growing In Science


The aims to encourage young people’s hunger for knowledge and develop healthy sustainable local communities through food. Some of the educational benefits include: 

  •  An improvement in pupil achievement (including subject-specific benefits, as well as impacts on pupils’ broader learning).   
  • Better pupil motivation (such as an improved attitudes towards school and study, higher attendance, and better behaviour).  
  • The project also has a positive impact on pupils’ environmental awareness.  
  • Improvements in pupils’ knowledge and understanding of horticulture (including knowledge about relevant career paths and employment sectors).
  • Enhanced practical gardening and growing skills.  
  • Better environmental awareness (including an understanding of issues such as: environmental responsibility; sustainability; and ecology).
