The Science Society gives pupils the chance to hear from leading scientists and engineers from around the country. Events are open to any who want to come from Bryanston, passionate scientist or interested bystander. We also have sixth form visitors from a number of local schools. Meetings often begin with short presentations from pupils, before the main speaker gives their talk. This is followed by questions and lastly a chance to chat with the speaker.

Many pupils have followed up on such meetings to arrange work experience or help with their own research projects. Details of upcoming science society events are included in the school calendar.

Contact the Head of Science if you would like to come along to any of the Science Society events.
