Lesson plans

Our lesson plans include wising up to waterlearning about drought and why water matters. We also have videos on why drinking water is important and how drinking water and sewage is treated.

We recommend visiting the Thames Tideway Tunnel website. It offers loads of great presentations, teachers’ notes, and student packs. These are ideal for primary and secondary schools and further education students. For career-related information for teachers, students and their families, visit the Developing Experts website.


We’re keen to support education in STEM subjects. Our resource packs support BTEC Level 1 and 2 awards in Engineering and Business.
