SK1 The first Technical School in the country opens in Stockport
We extend a warm welcome to you at SK1 Technical School. This pioneering school is for 14-19 year olds who have a passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths and an ambition to be successful in their future careers. The school is part of the Stockport College family.
SK1, Stockport Technical opened its doors to students last week. The school is the first technical school in the country and is pioneering a fresh approach to learning with a firm focus on “education to prepare you to earn a living”. The school enrolled 100 students and is full for the first year.
I am delighted to be leading such an innovative school and to be in a position to offer something exciting and different for students who have a particular interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM subjects).
SK1 Technical School will afford students the opportunity to study a specialist curriculum with a ground breaking approach to teaching which will ensure that they develop all the necessary skills to become excellent employees in the future. Learning will be personalised with a broad and balanced programme of core subjects alongside vocational options.
Students will be encouraged to develop their self-esteem, confidence and to value their own unique talents. Course delivery will be varied with hands-on learning, cross curricular projects and substantial input from local business.
I hope you enjoy finding out more about the school from our website and brochure and would encourage you to contract us for further information.
