Wessex Rivers Trust offers interactive assemblies, riverbank sessions and classroom sessions to suit the needs of your school or group.

All our sessions offer hands on, immersive activities that engage children with the natural world. Whilst we offer set sessions, we can adjust activities to fit with the needs of your school or group.

We come to you
We come to a site local to you, to make it relevant to the children and reduce travel costs. If we cannot find a suitable riverbank site for your learning, we can bring the river to life in your classroom.
We cover the Wessex region, including:
- Blandford Forum
