Programmes for Students


Priory LSST Biology students

The National Space Academy offers full day intensive curriculum focused Masterclasses in Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Applied Science, Physics, Mathematics and GCSE Astronomy.

Developed and delivered by the National Space Academy Lead Educators (outstanding current secondary school teachers seconded to the project) working with Project Scientists, these sessions use space science and climate change as inspirational "hooks" to support students in their curriculum studies in KS 3 - 5.

Utilising innovative equipment and techniques, current space science data and the extensive skills and knowledge of the National Space Academy team these sessions, with a hands-on focus, will enthuse students, expand subject knowledge and encourage the study of STEM subjects.

All Space Academy Masterclasses can be tailored to accommodate specific abilities, curriculum needs and school day timings.
