Project Description

Choose from our range of carefully curated Early Years Workshops, Clubs & Challenges

It’s never too early to introduce children to the wonderful world of STEM. In fact, the earlier the better!

Success4All has worked on a wide range of innovative STEM projects over the years, supporting both children and teachers alike.

STEM is a flourishing scene, with endless opportunities and potential. Sadly, not everyone views STEM in the same way.

The negative stereotypes and lack of diversity continue to hold females and students from low socio-economic backgrounds from studying STEM-related subjects and pursuing STEM careers.

Our STEM services are designed to inspire young people and raise the profile of exciting STEM opportunities.

We see it as part of our role to equip and empower teachers too. Our enquiry-based learning approach provides teachers with the opportunity to develop new teaching styles, whilst building their skills and confidence.

To make an enquiry or booking, please email our STEM Engagement Manager, Kirsty Hayward, at kirsty@s4a.org.uk

We have a number of workshops available for you to book for your class on a range of subjects.

We can deliver our workshops in your classroom or on our Learning Bus, depending on your booking.

Birds & Beaks

Why do birds have different shaped beaks? In this activity, children will investigate how birds have adapted their beaks over time to eat their favourite food in their habitat.

Moon Boots

Is the surface of the moon dry or wet, rocky or smooth? In this workshop, children will recreate footprints on the moon to discover what the surface of the moon could be like. 

Bees and Pollination

Bees are really important in our lives – they pollinate flowers and plants. In this activity, children will explore what a working day in the life of a bee is like.

What You Say

This project was engaging from the very start. All of the children were focused and demonstrated great teamwork skills. It was a fun way to learn about recycling and forces. Thank you!

Mrs Pugmire, Cheviot Primary

Great resources and very interactive which is difficult with our knowledge/resources to replicate. The challenge allows interactive, fun discovery with a STEM aspect. Communication and team building are also impacted and we have seen positive outcomes.

Quenten Dodds, St Cuthbert’s RC Primary School

‘Sessions are well staffed with the volunteers and children get a lot of one-to-one attention and help with their learning.’

Alison Ainslie, Community Manager, Wingrove Primary (2014)

‘S4A’s creative approaches and flexible delivery to study support have added significant value to the life chances of many of our young people.’

Mike Collier, Head Teacher Walker Technology College (2011-2017)

‘The Hub has been commented upon by Ofsted (2011 and 2014) as being a model of good practice.’

Mike Collier, Head Teacher, Walker Technology College

‘S4A have had a major impact on the achievements of our EAL-students and contributed to the fact that, in one year, our school EAL-pupils achieved better exam results than any other Newcastle secondary school.’

Don Burbeck, Deputy Head, Walker Technology College (2006-2016)

‘Success4All ran a German club, a Spanish club, an Italian club, an Italian Cooking club in our school.  It engaged both parent and pupil in a different way of learning.’

Steve Gittins, Tyneview Primary (2012)

‘Success4All is a great intervention both for students and staff, both in school and in a community setting. They have the opportunity to drop into the after school club and use facilities with support from their peers, approachable university students and staff. A great resource to be able to use when implementing personalised learning plans.’

Tony Bell, Pupil Intervention, Walker Technology College (2008-2018)

‘The Success4All Learning Hub has enabled us to offer additional learning opportunities outside of the traditional school day. With the children getting close support from volunteers, this adds real value to learning and helps pupils to progress in the key areas of Reading, Writing, Maths and Science at Westgate Hill.’

Karl Ellerbrook, Westgate Hill Primary Head Teacher

‘I am writing in recognition of the outstanding contribution Success4All has made to the Curriculum at Walker Technology College since our partnership was formed in 2006. The College serves an area of extreme deprivation and increasing cultural diversity. It is an area where curricular solutions do not follow a one size fits all model, and where education is equally as much a pastoral as an academic experience. Success4All have embraced and built upon this dynamic from the outset and as a consequence their creative approaches to study support have added significant value to the life chances of many of our young people. The club has been commented upon by Ofsted in previous inspections and good practice visits as being a model of good practice.’

Mike Collier, Walker Technology College Head Teacher
