The Associate Schools and Colleges scheme is a UK network of enthusiastic teachers who share their experience and work with us in order to help promote excellence in science and mathematics teaching.
Associate Schools and Colleges benefit from close links with the Royal Society and access to our resources and expertise.
We accept applications from primary schools, secondary schools, sixth form and further education colleges and from both the state sector and independent sector.
The pilot phase of the scheme in 2009 was initially restricted to London but we are now accepting applications from schools and colleges across the UK.
