Gender Quality Explored in Partnership
Senior Announcement

St Ed’s is proud to be a member of the Cheltenham Education Partnership. The CEP is a forward-thinking, innovative collaboration between locals schools and businesses. One of the key benefits for students is the thought-provoking series of hands-on workshops and events. St Ed’s recently hosted the latest, a collaborative workshop with four other Gloucestershire schools. Working together, students created brilliant displays for the forthcoming 2023 Cheltenham Science Festival's Discover Zone on the topic of gender equality, which is Goal 5 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.  

Expertise was on hand to guide and inspire students. Claire Forrest, from the 79group, provided an insight into their company's Women in Construction Campaign: ‘Rewire’ and Alisha Lewis, Cabinet Member Climate Emergency of Cheltenham Borough Council shared her experiences of being a woman in local politics. 

Each group chose to focus on one of three areas for their display: Equal opportunities within industry and careers (particularly STEM); Equal opportunities for female participation in politics and public life; and the financial implication and sustainability of menstruation. 

Mrs Safe, Head of Science Faculty commented “It was a really useful and enjoyable afternoon for students and teachers alike. Lovely to see students collaborating so positively.
