School visits

Last reviewed:

Come and learn about what we do by visiting one of our dedicated on-site education centres.

Our purpose-built facilities give your students a memorable day out, and help us teach the next generation all about the water industry.

Our education centres have all been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge.

What to expect

We'll take students on a fun, engaging tour of our wastewater works as part of our Key Stage 2 programme. Then, our well-equipped classrooms allow visitors to take part in interactive sessions designed to link with the National Curriculum and educate about water.

Best of all, it's free!
