About University Academy of Engineering South Bank
The University Academy of Engineering (UAE) is a happy school with high standards of behaviour where students feel safe and secure. Our teachers build strong relationships with every individual student, they nurture their personal growth and through carefully designed experiences support them to become confident, ambitious and socially responsible young men and women.
We have thought hard about what we need to teach and how we need to teach it. Through our curriculum students explore a rich body of knowledge across a broad range of subjects. We supplement this with an extensive enrichment curriculum of contextualised projects, educational visits, lectures, community work and a range of additional clubs and societies.
The importance of developing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) skills in schools has been well documented in the media over recent years but here at UAE we feel passionately that the confidence and creative mind-set that the Arts engender in our students is equally crucial to their development. To this end, we are proud to be a STEAM school where cutting edge technology, an exciting Arts curriculum and strong teaching all help our students develop the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to enable them to fulfil their ambitions and make their mark on the world.
Our students are given significant opportunities to make decisions about their learning in lessons and in the enrichment activities they participate in. We know how important it is for students to take ownership of their education as it increases their engagement in it. Our commitment to this is implicit in our statement that in our school you ‘Create your future’. We are sponsored by London South Bank University (LSBU) and this partnership provides our students with an extensive range of activities and support throughout their time at our school.
As a teacher at UAE you will become part of our Professional Learning Community. Through this you will take ownership of your own professional development and benefit from collaboration with your colleagues across the school.
