Beachborough’s STEM Programme shines during COVID-19

divider

Beachborough Prep School’s continued development and investment in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) has been a great help to its pupils and the wider community, especially this year.

The closure of schools during COVID-19 created many challenges for the education sector, but Beachborough was able to move to its online learning platform quickly and effectively, supporting all of their children from 2 ½ to 13 years of age. The school’s ongoing commitment to the development of STEM subjects and facilities, meant that teachers and pupils were digital-ready when time came. The independent school, on the Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire border implemented three online learning platforms to accommodate all age groups. Their children were able to benefit from live 1:1 teaching and learning opportunities during the school closure, a key focus which was to ensure that their wellbeing was supported through real-time interaction. Beachborough’s children and parents enjoyed the experience and, although it was not the same as being in school, felt that Beachborough was doing all it could to help and support learning, from a distance.

In support of their local community, the school fired up its laser cutters and 3D printers in its Technology, Engineering and Design Suite. They manufactured over 1000 visors for local hospitals and the NHS service. Headmaster, Mr Christian Pritchard, was delighted that Beachborough could support the local community in this way. He commented, “Using the latest technology, we were able to support our children and our local community during the COVID-19 pandemic. This was an excellent opportunity for us to ‘give back’. We were also able to share our digital learning platform developments and ideas with our local Primary schools as we continue to forge strong links with schools in the region and beyond.”

Beachborough are very proud of their Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics programme, and rightly so, as they were awarded ‘Best Prep School in the Country for STEM’ last year, by ‘The Independent Schools Guide’.

Not satisfied with standing still, Beachborough is continuing to develop its programme. As a result, they will be launching their new Digital Audio and Visual Suite for all children later in the year. Looking forward, this new facility will add a new layer of excitement to an already challenging curriculum that is fit for the future.

The history and health benefits of Coffee

From lattes and cappuccinos to macchiatos and frappuccinos. Cold brew, hot brew and dairy free options all to be tweaked with an ever-expanding list of syrups. What’s not to like? I suspect coffee is here to stay and I for one am extremely happy for it.
