Stoke Newington School is delighted to be teaming up with emotive, a healthcare communications agency based in London, as they provide financial support for our science department over three years, as well as a prize for an outstanding science pupil.

As a school, we will receive a bursary over three years from 2020 to invest in one of our nine science laboratories, which will become the ‘emotive lab’.

emotive is also providing a prize to an outstanding pupil studying science in their final year of A levels. The winner will be chosen through a science writing competition and final interview, and the winning pupil will receive a laptop or iPad and book tokens for university texts. This student will also be offered a period of work experience at emotive after completing their A levels and will be invited to take up an internship in the summer after their first year at university.

Our Head of Science Jesse Hershkowitz said:

“We are delighted to enter into a partnership with emotive, allowing selected pupils the opportunity to gain significant work experience at the company. The Prize for Scientific Engagement and resulting publicity in the school will hopefully encourage even more pupils at Stoke Newington School to excel in the subject and choose Science subjects at A level. It will also hopefully raise pupil understanding in the field of healthcare communications, one which they might otherwise not know much about. We are looking forward to naming one of our Science labs “the emotive lab” and will be spending the money we will be receiving on a new set of iPads for the Science department.”

Stoke Newington School is the second school to be added to emotive’s science bursary scheme.
