Covid-19 update

We've (hopefully temporarily!) changed the way we deliver our education programme

Currently our Education Centres at Headingley and Ewden are closed, it is important that we protect our operational staff, they are keeping our taps running and our toilets flushing. Our Tophill Low Education Centre is open and we are taking bookings.

We hope our Education Centres at Headingley and Ewden will re-open as soon as possible but we are currently not taking any bookings for Autumn 2021 in order to protect our operational teams in light of the increasing cases in the community. 

We are taking Education Centre bookings for the Spring 2022 term but these will be on the basis that all restrictions within the community and within our operating business have been lifted.  

Rainy day

During the past year we have worked together to continue to provide the best service we can for schools and groups who usually visit us.

Here is a list of our currently availability for both the Autumn 2021 & Spring 2022 term, bookings can be made in the normal way, by clicking the button below.

  • 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 brand new '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!
