In the classroom

Support we provide in schools

The School is committed to supporting science, maths and social science-related learning at schools and colleges in Camden, Westminster and Islington. We have a growing community of staff and research degree students who are STEM Ambassadors and regularly give workshops related to their research as well as discuss their career paths with students. If you are a teacher at a central London school, please write to us at
