Social Science for Schools

SSFS banner

This section is dedicated to providing information and resources on the social sciences which we feel are of particular use and interest to teachers and senior students in schools and further education.

These resources cover topics ranging from crime and body image to genomics and elections. Most are created around research funded by the ESRC, but we also include information and links to other areas of interest.

The ESRC is part of Research Councils UK. Find out more about the ESRC and its history.
