Schools' Educational Programme

Educating the next generation

For more than a decade, thousands of children have benefitted from our FREE talks, assemblies and workshops as well as our FREE guided tour of Bough Beech Treatment Works and Reservoir, where the whole topic of water treatment comes to life on a massive scale.

Designed by teachers for teachers, the Programme supports water topics within the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum - geography, science and the environment. In many schools it has become an integral part of the curriculum. An exciting and informative experience for both pupils and teachers.

Our team of dedicated and enthusiastic tutors will help your pupils understand the importance of water, assisted by our cheeky cartoon characters, Flow and Squirt!

But don't take our word for it, here are just a few comments we've received from teachers:

"Excellent teaching throughout the day"
"We always love coming to Bough Beech"
"This is our favourite trip year after year"
"Outstanding - the best school trip I've ever experienced - well planned and executed"
