PSA Communities: Schools

Welcome to the Schools’ area of the Political Studies Association UK’s website.

Although our membership is primarily drawn from institutions of higher education we have a growing number of teacher members.

We have been working hard to expand and enhance our offering to schools through the provision of resources and activities such as workshops, lectures, competitions and teaching resources.

Additionally, we are dedicated to making the case that the study of politics prepares students for many forms of employment, as well as further study, and are working hard behind the scenes to ensure Government and Politics is a valued and important element of sixth form study.

Please use the links on the right hand side to navigate through this section of our website where you will find the PSA’s seminars for schools, competitions and events, teacher resources, useful articles and our newsletter archive.  


Follow the PSA on Twitter or search for the #PSAschools hastag for real time updates for all our schools' activities and news.

Teacher membership costs just £44 for a 12-month subscription.  It entitles all your students to use our services for schools - just one teacher membership effectively delivers membership to your whole school. You can become a PSA member online, or by printing off and filling in our membership leaflet.
