Science Saturday School
The Science Saturday School is run in partnership with the 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.
