Visiting your school

The Education team can visit schools in the Rutland area. We can offer the following ….



We can visit primary and secondary schools to give a whole school assembly about the Rutland Ospreys. This makes an excellent introduction to the Rutland Ospreys and starting point for a school wishing to develop a programme of study using our resources.

There are a choice of assembly talk titles and each of which content which is specifically designed to suit a primary or secondary schools audience, and suited to a first or subsequent visit.


Class or group activities

The Education team are all former teachers and have experience in working with primary and secondary school groups.

We can offer a range of presentations or practical activities for classes or small groups of pupils. This allows us a lot of flexibility in deciding with you about the content, delivery and timing of our activities with  your school group.


Printed resources

 “Be an Osprey Expert”

This A5 pupil activity booklet has 26 pages, and is aimed at children Key stage 2 and Key stage 3 .It would form a useful resource for our visit and can then be used for subsequent class activities using information from the Rutland Water Website.

These can be sold at cost to schools – please ask for details.




No charge is normally made to visit any schools within a 25 mile radius of Rutland Water for a class presentation or assembly.  However a donation is appreciated towards our travelling expenses.

For workshop or group activities please contact us to discuss your ideas. We can then advise about what we can offer and agree on which resources we can provide and if there will be any costs.


Making a booking

As we are a small team, prior booking is essential, giving us as much notice as possible.

To help us to make the most of your booking we will need information about your school address/location, the age group of the audience, and the venue/ facilities including projection equipment and the area of the school where we will work with the pupils. As visits are popular, initially a choice of dates would be helpful.
