Booking opens for the autumn term at our Education Centres

Yorkshire Water are now taking bookings for the autumn 2016 term at our Education Centres.
Past experience has shown the sessions will be snapped up quickly so we are urging primary schools to book free visits now to avoid disappointment.

Both centres are located at fully operational sites. Headingley is a water treatment works in North Leeds where children will see how water is cleaned and how we supply our customers with a constant supply of fresh drinking water.

At Esholt waste water treatment works in Bradford the students will see where water ends up once they've used it in their homes and how it is safely returned back into the environment.

99,000 visitors from across the region have passed through the doors since the centres opened in 2003. Visits tend to be combined; a morning at Headingley before travelling to Esholt for the afternoon.

Anne Reed, Corporate Responsibility Adviser said: "Our education centres were developed with the help of teachers to cover the core elements of the National Curriculum Key Stage 2, including numeracy, literacy, geography and science. We receive excellent reviews from teachers who visit with 100% of visitors telling us that their learning objectives have been met in full.”

Requests for bookings can be made here.
