Southwark Community Education Charity

Southwark Community Education Charity (SCEC) is a registered charity which operates three schemes for state primary school pupils. We host the Science Scheme for Year 6 pupils. We aim to provide an enjoyable introduction to practical science and improve confidence before secondary school.

60 children attend two-hour sessions on Saturday mornings. They explore Biology, Chemistry and Physics through practical experiments.

We provide a co-ordinator who administers all three schemes; a fully trained member of staff to oversee the programme every Saturday morning; facilities, equipment and refreshments. Twenty volunteer mentors from Years 12 and 13 support pupils in the classroom, carry out administrative tasks and supervision, and act as role models.

"I liked coming to Saturday School because we made friends and [learnt] about the three sciences to prepare me for secondary school. The best session I had was looking at a lamb's heart and making slime."
