Each canal and river offers unique and engaging ways to bring learning to life for your pupils. From waterway habitats, traditional folk art to amazing engineering inventions, our waterways offer a wealth of opportunities for extra-curricular study!

Our volunteers use practical resources linked to the national curriculum or group badges to lead enjoyable and inspiring trips along our waterways or in your classroom or meeting place.

Let's explore the waterways together!
