Schools Engagement

The Water, Mills and Marshes Education Team provide programmes and experiences for pupils of all ages within the incredibly special Broads National Park. Our projects are designed to build an understanding of the Park’s history, landscape, wildlife, culture and economy and reflect our “A Sense of Place – and a Place to Achieve” ethos.

Our entirely free programme of initiatives offer students a rewarding experience out in the Broads National Park as well as in the classroom. We work with primary schools, high schools and colleges providing both structured and informal learning opportunities. These can be tailored to various group sizes, from entire year groups down to school science, music and art clubs.

For Primary Schools we offer a three-part Core Package. This includes an Introductory Roadshow followed by an Experience Day of river cruise and visits to local sites of natural and historical interest. There is then a Project Day back in school where pupils interpret their experiences by producing various forms of artwork to exhibit to the local community. Each year, as well as the Core Package, we also offer a variety of further projects.

For High Schools and Colleges we work with you to tailor our programmes to meet the needs of the students and the particular subject they are studying. We have programmes that encompass art, music, geography, history and science.

All the above are facilitated using our own minibuses at no cost to the school or college. Please be aware we are only able to offer these programmes to education establishments within the Water, Mills and Marshes project area.
