Wycombe High School actively promotes STEM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Significant numbers of our students study Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics, Further Mathematics and Computer Studies to A Level.
We also offer Core Mathematics in Year 12, a qualification that sits between a GCSE and an A Level. Core Mathematics carries great currency with employers and universities and can be studied alongside non-STEM subjects. All GCSE students study triple science and are encouraged to study additional mathematics in addition to Mathematics GCSE. STEM subjects are studied at A Level alongside, for example, the performing and visual arts, humanities, languages, and sport studies, providing depth and breadth in learning. Our STEM Leader ensures our school has a wide range of vibrant STEM clubs, societies, competitions and visits. Our H.E and Careers Co-ordinator provides regular opportunities to access STEM internships, career experiences and support to access the very best universities nationally and internationally to continue STEM learning.
Wycombe High School is a Mathematics Hub and as such provides professional development for mathematics teachers (primary and secondary) across Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire.
Wycombe High School is a national teacher trainer organisation for Mathematics and Physics trainee teachers. It leads the National Mathematics and Physics SCITT (School Centred Initial Teacher Training) from 10 training hubs across England. This is done in partnership with the very best state and independent schools nationally.
