On Wednesday 26th March, Vim and Pauline visited Virginie Raymond whose company runs a STEM 16-19 College in Islington, called STEM6. Its website is at http://stemacademy.org.uk/. The college is not offering exactly the same kind of curriculum that we intend to offer, but we gained some very useful advice and support.
After that, we went to the Palace of Westminster as we had been invited to meet the Rt. Ho, Stephen Mosley, MP for Chester. He is also on the select committee for science and technology. He was extremely helpful, and has offered to advertise the college. He is offering advice and help in many ways, but we are especially pleased because he suggested premises to us. If we can get the DfE’s support when we apply in September, the premises he suggested (easily reached from the centre of Chester) would be perfect. We are really grateful to him.
