Castlederg High School is actively involved in the promotion of STEM related subjects. These include Science, Technology & ICT, Engineering and Maths. We recognise the growing need for skills in these subject areas within the Northern Ireland Economy. We are the lead school in the 'Digital Creative and Financial Technologies Group'; and are one of the first schools in Northern Ireland to offer remotely the Professional Financial Services qualification at Level 2.
STEM industries are at the heart of current economic growth, and we are encouraging all our pupils to equip themselves with the skills and knowledge necessary to obtain meaningful employment in these sectors of industry. We do this by offering a wide selection of STEM subjects at KS3, 4 and 5, and by giving pupils the opportunity to experience STEM for themselves in many ways including through use of the visiting STEM module bus and Connected Learning STEM days in school.
