Woodford County High School for Girls is one of a kind. It’s an award-winning high school in London that supports young women as they grow into independent, confident and competent adults.
The school has been educating young women for over 100 years. It presents a diverse and challenging curriculum that encourages intellectual and personal development.
Physics Wall Art for schools
At Woodford County High School for Girls, pupils are encouraged to take an interest in all areas of the curriculum. There is a particular focus on STEM subjects. With this in mind, the school approached us to design Physics Wall Art for their school corridor. The design needed to invoke natural curiosity in pupils, while serving as a visual learning aid for students as they made their way between lessons.
We visited the school to discuss their objectives and take a look at the space they had in mind for their school Physics Wall Art. A large white wall provided the perfect backdrop for bespoke school Wall Art. We depicted a stunning view of space and its planets, supported by interesting facts and useful figures. We also gave a nod to some of the famous faces within the field of Science, like Dame Susan Jocelyn Bell Burnell, who discovered the first pulsar 51 years ago.
Get girls into STEM
The Promote Your School team were delighted to support the school on this important project. It’s no secret that there is a severe lack of women in STEM jobs. In fact, between 2017 and 2018, only 39% of students studying physical sciences in higher education were female. (source: here)
According to Girlsintostem, “recent research by the Institute of Engineering & Technology as part of its Engineering a Better World campaign has revealed that a staggering 93% of parents would not support their daughter to pursue a career in engineering. However when asked what subjects they enjoy at school, 39% of girls said they enjoy Information Technology, Computing and Design & Technology. This research shows there is a clear interest in STEM areas that doesn’t translate to the number of females entering the engineering industry.”
Bringing the school’s walls to life®
We’re thrilled with the final result of this school Physics Wall Art project and the positive feedback we received from the school. Beautiful bespoke design has brought the school’s walls to life and transformed a previously uninteresting white wall within a school corridor into a visual delight.
