2016 saw the launch of a new programme of activities and support for teachers signed up to the Royal Society Schools Network. These activities aim to help them work towards the Royal Society’s Vision for science and mathematics education. For the academic year 2017/18 we have expanded the reach of the network and continue to develop the programme of activities and support available.


The Royal Society Schools Network aims to raise the profile of science, computing and mathematics within participating schools and colleges at all levels of primary and secondary education within the UK. 

Benefits include:

  • the opportunity to engage in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events, latest science and education policy and funded pilots;
  • advanced booking when applying for the Royal Society’s Summer Science Exhibition;
  • early notification of opportunities such as Partnership Grants and judging the Young People’s Book Prize;
  • direct links to Royal Society education resources;
  • opportunities to share best practice with other teachers in the network; and
  • a regular email newsletter.

The Royal Society Schools Network is free to sign up to, and teachers can leave the Network at any time.

More information

We are looking for schools and colleges keen to explore and develop their existing science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) provision. They can be at the start of their journey, or well established and keen to share their ideas and best practice. Any teacher may sign up to the Royal Society Schools Network as long as:

  • They are based in the UK; 
  • They are teaching any primary or secondary level STEM subjects (or subjects that link to STEM); 
  • They teach students in the age range 5 to 18 years.
