At Collingham, we are uncompromising in our commitment to academic standards across all disciplines, but it is imperative that we provide a framework which equips students with the aptitude and practical skills necessary as they move forwards and into the workplace. Today, scientific and technological innovations have become increasingly important and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) now has an undeniable presence in the educational landscape as we face the benefits and challenges of both globalization and a knowledge-based economy.

To enable our students to succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, we are focused on encouraging students in STEM disciplines, a field in which women and minority groups can often be under represented. To support this, Collingham awards a number of science scholarships to help fund the fees of gifted and talented students who are likely to gain particular benefit from our academic provision and the more general opportunities the college has to offer.

At its core, this focus is about taking an independent, student-led approach.  We fully support students to establish both the firm foundations and the aspirational vision that they need to achieve the top grades required to pursue STEM subjects at universities of excellence.

The STEM subjects offered at Collingham are;

The STEM Team

The STEM programme at Collingham consists of a team of incredibly passionate and talented staff who provide significant opportunities for students at the school. Many of the tutors are academics in their own right, working at the forefront of their subjects and as associates of leading institutions. This includes:

Robert Callaghan (Mathematics) - Robert is a member of the Institute of Physics (the professional body and learned society for Physics in the UK and Ireland). The aim of the institute is to inspire people to develop their knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of physics.

Dr Lata Govada (Biology) - Dr Govada is also a research associate at Imperial College, London within the faculty of Medicine, Department of Metabolism, Digestion and Reproduction. Her current research focuses on the crystallisation and 3-D structure determination of proteins and other biological molecules of medical interest including cancer therapy, diabetes and heart related diseases for the purpose of rational drug design.

Dr Krini Georgiou (Chemistry)   

Dr Andrew Cook (Mathematics)

Michael Floyd (Physics) - Michael is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, founded in 1820. The Society aims to encourage and promote the study of astronomy, solar-system science, geophysics and closely related branches of science. He is also an avid eclipse chaser.

Dr Alex Morris (Biology) - Alex Morris also currently works in the Department of Brain Sciences, Imperial College London. His research covers the following topics; Genetics, Neuroscience and Molecular Biology.

Dr Fabrice Bollet-Quivogue (Chemistry) 

Dr Andrew Smith (Chemistry)
