As we move into the future, solving problems will require greater imagination, collaboration and innovation.
At Regent, our STEAM education programme is inter-disciplinary, ensuring high standards, intellectual challenge and real-world thinking & problem-solving. Not only do students learn to solve problems through real-world design thinking, they are also to taught to think critically & deeply to find problems, to learn how to apply technological skills in order to create possible solutions to improve the world around them.
Regent is an outstanding school
and provides an outstanding quality of education for pupils from three to 11 years
Very strong Curriculum with rich learning opportunities
that has an impact on the child's progress.
We learn to sing and to use our voices, to create and compose music.
We even have the opportunity to learn how to play different musical instruments. Our music teachers are very talented. They even taught some of us how to floss.
With an amazing senior leadership team and experienced educators,
a Regent education is interactive and collaborative – they truly make primary school a memorable experience.
My school feels like home.
I love coming to school every day.
Possibilities seem infinite at Regent.
There are no limits in my child’s imagination about what he can do. Children are encouraged to take chances, try anything and not be afraid.
The strong sense of community makes Regent more than just a great place for study,
it’s a great place to socialise and make new friends.
Regent has given my daughter a new start.
This school has encouraged her to gain confidence and to express herself despite mistakes. The teachers are always available to help and laugh with her.
Preparing students for the future, Industry 4.0
In primary, students learn through play, discovery & invention, developing their creative problem-solving approaches with real-life problems, acquiring a wide array of vital technical & coding skills. They design prototypes with the engineering design process, learn about innovation, SMART technologies & AI, enterprise and developer “maker” characteristics.
In secondary, students begin to master those technical skills in depth, which are aligned to future industries—industry 4.0. They refine their engineering skills, learn about rapid prototyping and industry ready standards whilst combining entrepreneurial skills with maker space ideas. They develop their understanding of SMART technologies & AI and work with industry mentors which helps them gain insights into the real world and a glimpse into the future.
Combined with our Positive Education programme, Regent students learn to deal with critical feedback in a positive way and learn strategies to apply this feedback, not only to improve their outcomes, but also their skills, talents and aptitudes.
STEAM at Regent is an opportunity for students to develop character, strengthen resilience and build confidence whilst applying their learning and their imagination to potentially create those solutions & those jobs of the future: it’s the education that will help them be happy, healthy & succeed in life.
STEAM requires students to think deeply & analytically, applying & evaluating information to make informed decisions as they engineer their solutions to problems. Project-based learning & cross-curricular projects give students opportunities to engage different parts of their brains, to use & apply their skills in real-world contexts. It teaches them to see not only bigger and smaller pictures, but also how each reach relates to the other.
Since the beginning of time, humans have been solving problems & finding ways to increase automation & efficiency, from inventing the wheel to Roman engineering to those constant updates of modern day apps. STEAM gives students the opportunity to use processes like the Engineering Design Process to iterate their solution, take risks and think outside the box. STEAM demands creativity, so does solving problems.
The arts are varied, but yet they’re integral to engineering & solving problems and bring out the best in STEAM subjects. It’s one thing to engineer a solution that works, it’s another to provide that perfect design between aesthetics & usefulness: the clunky mobile phone or the sleek iPhone? The solution must be user-friendly. It must appeal. The Arts help link the logical with the creative; innovating creativity.
