Moncrieff-Jones Society

Moncrieff-Jones Society

No other school in the country has a Science Society to rival the prestigious Moncrieff-Jones Society. It has been running for 50 years and is the most popular and well attended all the school’s serious academic societies. 

Only those pupils with the strongest constitution put their name forward to give a talk. Each term 6 pupils present 30 minute talks on a science topic of their choice.

They get no help whatsoever in preparing the talk and are then cross-questioned by the audience for a further half hour. Presenting an MJS talk has been likened to 12 rounds in a boxing ring with Mike Tyson. The Autumn term talks are presented by potential Oxbridge students – any Fifth Year or Sixth Form pupils thinking of studying a science at University should be there, though anyone is welcome. Food and drinks provided.

Time: Tuesdays 4.30pm

Location: Science Dept.
