Schools Affiliate Scheme

Geology, although often not a stand alone subject within schools, is covered across all the science disciplines – Chemistry, Physics, Biology and Maths. At the GSL we can provide support to those schools wishing to understand more about Earth Sciences and how to incorporate examples within the National Curriculum.

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

  • Monthly copy of Geoscientist
  • Receive the Schools Affiliate e-newsletter
  • Access to the Shell Lecture series and other GSL events
  • Access on-line to books and journals, e.g. the Lyell Collection
  • Use of the GSL Library
    • Concessionary rates for reference use of the Library
  • Access to Regional Groups, who may provide local events/ talks for schools to attend
  • Copies of the Earth Science Week Material
  • The ability to email questions to a ‘real-life’ geologist
  • Access to Geologists who can visit the school, via the online speakers list
  • Visit The Geological Society’s Careers Day
  • Online Teaching Resources
  • Printed material about careers in Earth Sciences
  • The opportunity for school pupils to become a Junior Candidate Fellow
