Workshops and visits

Introducing the Wonderful Water Tour. An innovative educational roadshow created to inspire and educate children across our region all about the wonderful world of water.

We live and breathe water at Severn Trent. Not a day passes without us exploring new ways to source it, look after it and ensure all our customers can enjoy it every day of the year. Our passionate team of Education Officers are determined to visit every primary school in our region to share this knowledge, offering a FREE range of activities as well as site visits for primary schools and community groups.

Primary school visits

We offer both assembly sessions and workshops although we find most schools choose both options as they work well together and help inspire the children.

From learning about good water use, why and how we need to keep hydrated, to looking after your waste water, the team are experts in making our assemblies both interactive and informative.

Our hands-on workshops are the perfect follow-on from our assemblies for a key stage 2 year group of your choice and you can choose from two options: our standard classroom-based workshop or a workshop in our amazing interactive buses. Both options contain a host of fun group activities with cross curricular links to geography, science and maths. Our buses park up at the school and are a great space for children to have fun and explore the world of water; you can find out more about our buses below.

Best of all, our assemblies and workshops are completely free and can even help your school achieve Eco-School status.

“The assembly was a great way to kick - start our topic and get the whole school involved.”

Community groups

Naturally we’re happy to tailor our workshops and provide talks and presentations geared towards a more adult audience. These workshops can be used to highlight simple day-to-day changes that will help reduce bills, lower waste and have a positive impact on the environment.

Educational site tours

Ever wondered how a sewage treatment really works? Or how we turn waste into clean water? Thanks to our education centre in Derby, you’ll soon have more answers than questions. We offer free site tours to primary schools and adult community groups within our region, providing a behind the scenes look at the inner workings of a treatment works. If you’re a primary school then our only requirement is that you allow us to deliver an assembly to your whole school.

Due to their popularity, availability is strictly limited and pre-booking is absolutely essential. All site tours are run by our education team who’ll discuss the unique requirements of your group prior to confirming the booking.
