It all starts with education

We stand for building the foundations of the future and it all starts with education.

Hello, and a big thanks for dropping by! We’re the education arm (or shoulder) of Bristol Water. Our aim is to make a splash on our next generation of customers to set them up for a rainbow-filled future.

About the Bristol Water Foundation

We’re made of two parts...

  • Learning – head to the learning tab for lots of great resources on anything water-related, whether that’s the water cycle or birds you can find at our lakeside. This section is mostly aimed at KS2 students and is mapped to the national curriculum.
  • Careers – this section is for those in year 10 up to university age. It provides a summary of all the opportunities here at Bristol Water and shares some great ways to get ahead in your career, write a CV and much more.

The Foundation also taps into key environmental issues. There’s plenty on why we should be saving water, reducing plastic waste, and our hidden water footprint. You can also take our water saving pledge here for a chance to win an iPad!

It is very important to us to make learning accessible to anyone, anywhere, especially in current times, so we can help as many of you grow as possible.

Top-quality water learning for all

There are almost 50 high-quality FREE learning resources for anyone to use, anywhere. Our worksheets, experiments and more have been developed with real teachers, pupils and area experts.
