We're pleased to share our availability for the 2022/23 academic year.  Bookings can be made in the normal way, by clicking the button below.

In addition to site visits, we can offer the following activities:

  • Outreach visits to schools delivering our usual workshops and presentations in a COVID-19 safe manner.  We are taking bookings for one class taking part in our full day programme, or 2 classes each receiving a half day programme (one class in the morning, another class in the afternoon).
  • For schools who prefer a virtual experience, we can deliver a live 'virtual workshop' via Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Webex or GoToMeet.
  • For Key Stage 4, we have a 'virtual careers presentation' which can be delivered in the same way.
  • We have a suite of online lessons accessed through our YouTube channel, see our Online lessons page for more information.
  • We are offering a series of virtual assemblies each term, including sessions on water safety, the countryside code and live Q&A's with our clean and waste water operators!

All our Education Centre visits are offered free of charge - you only need to pay and arrange your own transport.
