*** Spring 2020 *** We can’t come to your school right now, so we’re bringing the river to you! Watch our River School videos for fun lessons based on the sessions we normally deliver in classrooms. Lessons are based on Key Stage 2 Science and Geography.

Education programme

We believe that inspiring children to appreciate and experience our fantastic rivers will help to protect and conserve these important habitats for future generations. 

What we offer


“…the children thoroughly enjoyed it and I was amazed at how much they ‘soaked up’ in such a short amount of time!”  Gosforth Primary teacher after a two day rivers programme

“The kids were all buzzing- and as a class who often find it difficult to work together, what a super day to build positive working attitudes on…”  Frizington Primary teacher after a tree planting day

“I learned that the river is a lot more than just water, it is amazing and all the things that live there has there own meaning”  pupil from St. Michael’s, Bothel
