The Times Educational Supplement (TES) awarded us ‘Strategic Education Initiative 2018’ for our introduction of Engineering to the curriculum. In the words of the TES judges, “Engineering at St Faith’s is a STEM dream, and is producing our engineers of the future. An admirable, innovative and challenging project, using local expertise and encouragement, with superb results. To introduce Engineering as a curriculum subject from age 7 is a bold and inspirational step. We were deeply impressed.”
