Helping your child invent the Future

We want your child to imagine a world of infinite possibilities.

Embracing Collaboration

Creative and Curiosity

Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) play an invaluable part in helping your child to develop academic, social and personal success. Through practical, hands-on problem solving, your child will develop transferrable skills such as creativity, curiosity, resilience, resourcefulness, collaboration and confidence to help pave the way to a wide-open future.

Students entering school now will be graduating in the year 2030. Will your child have the skills needed to succeed in the 21st century? By tackling real-world challenges across the subjects of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM), your child will develop transferable skills such as flexibility, creativity and communication. Nord Anglia Education is also working with MIT to introduce your child to this innovative way of learning the STEAM subjects which encourages creativity, experimentation, and teaches them how to apply their skills to real-world situations. Watch our film to learn more about our collaboration with MIT.

Every spring term, Oakridge students, as a part of Nord Anglia Education, visit MIT to immerse themselves in a culture of hands-on problem-solving. Your child will meet leading MIT scientists, build and experiment in workshops, and learn about the new discoveries that will shape their future. Activities during the MIT visit include everything from building robots, to bioengineering, to coding. Your child will also have a chance to visit MIT and Harvard allowing them to experience student life at one of these prestigious universities.

Our STEAM teachers participate in workshops at MIT that expose them to the forefront of STEAM research and thinking. Every summer, Nord Anglia teachers visit MIT to receive hands-on training from MIT researchers and renowned academics. Activities include discussions and workshops with leading engineers and scientists about topics such as climate change, food production technologies, city planning and gaming among other things.

Science and technology are traditionally taught separately. Used together they are tools for cracking some of the world’s greatest puzzles. Our in-school challenges encourage students to work together every term to find innovative and creative solutions to complex problems. For example, thousands of students at all the Nord Anglia schools from around the world blended ingenuity and imagination to construct a chain reaction machine. Amazing things happen when you blend the natural curiosity of youth with the learning style of one of the world’s most influential universities.
