Caroline is based at Anglian Water’s Leighton Linslade Water Recycling Centre at the purpose-built education unit and she is ready to welcome schools and community groups to pay a visit.

Anglian Water has two purpose-built education centres in Leighton Linslade and Chelmsford, alongside an education outreach programme in schools.

A visit provides the opportunity to discover the sights, sounds and smells of a water recycling centre while fun, interactive sessions in the well-equipped classroom provide an exciting range of experiences to bring the water topic to life.

Anglian Water education provision encompasses all Key Stages and A-Level. A range of topics such as water efficiency, pollution, climate change and sustainability can be explored in a session.

Sessions are fun, interactive and include challenges and self directed projects. All education sessions are free of charge.

Caroline qualified as a primary school teacher in 2010 and has been working in the area ever since and hopes to see many local schools book an education visit over the school year.

She said: “I’m really pleased to join Anglian Water’s Education Team. I can’t wait to welcome schools to the centre and provide quality outdoor learning.”
