About University Academy of Engineering South Bank
University Academy of Engineering South Bank is a rapidly growing, mixed 11 - 16 academy located in the London Borough of Southwark within walking distance of London South Bank University and in the heart of London. The Academy opened in September 2014 and is the first academy in Southwark to be sponsored by a University; the Academy has the STEM subjects Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths and creativity as the focus of the curriculum.
Our three key values are Connections, Challenges and Creativity. In practice this means that everyone will be able to clearly identify, create, maintain and articulate the connections between all aspects of learning and progression routes for development.
These inter-connections are nurtured through relationships, first from community bases within the Academy, then expanding to wider partnerships and connections within our local, national and global communities. This dynamic approach offers a supportive framework in which to encourage inspiring minds to challenge and question themselves and the world and develop as creative, courageous and persevering risk takers. If this distinctive outlook on learning appeals - you can arrange to visit our academy.
Our sponsor, London South Bank University, is amongst the universities offering the strongest engineering education in the UK. LSBU has a particular emphasis on digital engineering and some of the most modern engineering facilities including a virtual engineering suite. Our students benefit from LSBU’s extensive employer and academic links and gain unique opportunities to develop their skills alongside them in a real world hands-on learning environment.
