Royal Society Schools Network

The Royal Society Schools Network comprises enthusiastic teachers and staff from schools and colleges across the UK involved in 5 – 18 years education. Within the network we consider teachers to encompass all those who work in schools and colleges to support the education of students, including technicians, members of senior leadership teams, and teaching support staff. 

We encourage all those who are part of the network to share their experience and good practice, and work with us in order to develop scientific expertise and promote excellence in science, computing and mathematics teaching. Others who support these aims, such as STEM education organisations, can sign up to the Royal Society Schools Network as associate contacts.

The Royal Society Schools Network comprises practising UK teachers, technicians and classroom assistants as well as associate contacts in STEM organisations.

All those within the network will receive a regular email newsletter highlighting support, events and resources for those teaching science, mathematics and computing to ages 5 to 18. The network is free to sign up to, and the form takes just a few minutes to complete.

Teachers who are part of the network benefit from early booking for selected events such as the Summer Science Exhibition, additional financial support to attend continuing professional development (CPD) events, and access to subject specific resources. They also have the opportunity to be involved in pilot projects and policy consultations on STEM education. Teachers can raise their profile, and that of their institution, by sharing their experience and good practice in STEM education via the Royal Society Schools Network blog. 

A full list of opportunities currently available can be found below.

If you would like to get in touch about the Royal Society Schools Network or any of our education outreach activities, please email the Education Outreach team.
