A British scientist is to feature on the new £50 in recognition of the contribution made by Science to the prosperity, health and wellbeing of us all.

As the monarch is the only living person who can feature on a Bank of England notes the Scientist chosen must be deceased.

Our S1 and S2 pupils are being encouraged to research our shortlisted scientists to make an informed decision about whom they would like to appear on the new note.

Lest we forget

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”

[Robert Laurence Binyon, 1914]
