Schools Affiliate Scheme

Schools Affiliates

Geology, although often not a stand alone subject within schools, is covered across all the science disciplines – Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Maths, as well as Geography. 

At the Geological Society we can provide support to those schools wishing to understand more about Earth Sciences and how to incorporate examples within the National Curriculum.

Benefits of joining

The Society can provide the following supporting material to schools as part of the Schools Affiliate Scheme:

"" Monthly copy of Geoscientist Magazine "" Email newsletters - these cover a broad range of student interests, and give schools the opportunity to offer their own material for inclusion
"" Access to our monthly London Lectures aimed at a lay audience, and other GSL events "" Printed material about careers in Earth Sciences
"" Each registered school is automatically allocated to their local Regional Group, allowing easy access to local events, contacts etc. Our strong relationship with other worldwide Geological Societies gives us access to their teaching materials. It also gives UK schools the opportunity for international partnerships.

The opportunity to become a Junior Candidate Fellow
Geophysics Information about geology degrees accredited by the Society to assist students in selecting courses.
"" Access to Geologists who can visit the school
