The Mars story of the school

The Mars project, envisioned by a student after watching Tim Peake’s 2016 mission, is our chance to inspire more girls while in their formative years, to consider studying science at A level and beyond.

Since 1879 King’s High Warwick has been championing girls in science and STEM subjects as one of the leading all-girls schools in the Midlands. The importance of girls’ education back then was viewed as inferior to that of boys and the early headmistresses of King’s set about trying to change that. Over a hundred years on girls and boy’s education is viewed as equal, however the number of girls in science and STEM subjects is still not equal to our male counterparts; through school and into the workplace. Just 35% of girls choose maths, physics and computing compared to 94% of boys

The Project One campus is the latest opportunity for King’s girls, consisting of brand new school buildings on the Warwick School site. It will feature state of the art science labs, enabling future generations of girls to study with the best facilities possible. The future King’s girls at the Prep and local schools will use these labs for their time at King’s and we believe the Mars Project will inspire them to see what studying STEM can lead to, helped by access to high quality equipment. The project will assist in creating a collaborative relationship between the wide variety of subjects that have previously had minimal cross over in their syllabuses. The focus on Mars and astronomy links directly to the A Level Physics syllabus, inspiring more girls to study physics beyond GCSE. The supra-curricula activities conducted as a part of the project, such as building rovers in DT widen the educational experience of girls and enable them to see the real-life applications !
of their learning.
