We are really proud to today find out that we have been awarded the prestigious Silver Space Education Quality Mark!

UK schools and colleges receive the Space Education Quality Mark when they can show that they have significantly used the context of space in subjects, have worked with other organisations, shared resources and used space to enrich the curriculum.

The Space Education Quality Mark was created by ESERO-UK, which supports the space sector and teachers to open doors for young people from all backgrounds, by delivering inspiring world-class teaching in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects.

Alex Brown, STEM Support Programme Manager at STEM Learning, said “We are delighted to congratulate Runshaw on receiving the Silver Space Education Quality Mark. Each school and college who receives the Space Education Mark has demonstrated a real and ongoing commitment to excellent STEM education in their school. Runshaw is a great example of this.”

Head of Science at Runshaw Vicky Kilshaw said that she was “thrilled to receive the award, it’s a testament to the hard work of our students and staff, and once again demonstrated that students get a world class experience when they study STEM subjects at Runshaw”.

To help achieve a world-leading STEM education for all young people across the UK, teachers, teaching assistants or technicians from other primary or secondary schools and colleges, including independent schools can apply for the Space Education Quality Mark.
