LWS are the 2018 Rolls-Royce STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) award runners-up.
LWS was chosen from over 2000 original entries to the Rolls-Royce competition and came second in the final field of six, the first special school to do so in the history of the competition.
During a prestigious event staged at the Science Museum, members of our STEM team had the opportunity to meet industry leaders and VIPs, before attending the awards ceremony in the I-MAX theatre in the heart of the museum, check out our Twitter feed for images and comments!
This is a huge achievement for the students, staff and families of LWS and follows an intense final year of the competition. Our success was due to energy and effort that made ‘Project House’ a reality, through the introduction of a STEM approach to enhance the learning experiences of the students.

As runners-up, we received a fabulous trophy of a small jet engine replica and £5,000 toward sustaining a legacy of STEM. To achieve this level of recognition and reward is outstanding and demonstrates that through innovation and creativity in the curriculum we can achieve anything we wish to aspire toward.
