  • 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.
