The Unicorn School

A Specialist School supporting pupils with dyslexia and related learning difficulties

STEM Ambassador Visits The Unicorn School

Last week we welcomed former Unicorn School pupil Harry Bulman who came to present a special assembly on careers in Engineering and STEM industries (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

Harry was a pupil at The Unicorn School in 2003.  In assembly he spoke about the difficulties he had faced as a dyslexic child, he recalled how at The Unicorn School “it all started to make sense” and how finally he was able to read the words on a page. 

Harry has since graduated from The University of Plymouth with a 2:1 degree in Engineering.  He is an Engineer and STEM Ambassador at Babcock International where his work includes refurbishing Naval warships and submarines.

Harry is an inspiration to young people interested in a career in STEM industries.  Engineering is a realistic career choice for both girls and boys and dyslexia and SpLDs should not present a barrier.  To find out more about career opportunities in STEM please explore the following links.
