Google HQ to host open day for new Tech City sixth form
A new sixth form near Tech City specialising in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) will hold an open day at Google’s Soho HQ.
The STEM Academy Sixth Form opens this September to 16-19 year olds in an as yet undisclosed location around Hackney’s Tech City, as part of the government’s free school programme.
It has been announced John O’Shea will take up the post of principal in April, moving over from his current role as principal of Islington Sixth Form Consortium (IC6).
Prospective students will get the first opportunity to meet with him and hear more about plans for the STEM Academy Sixth Form at the open day on February 22.
Shuvo Saha, industry director of Google UK will make a speech and Dr Tony Sewell, founder and Director of Generating Genius, one of the Academy’s partners will speak about the importance of the STEM subjects.
