Quarries offer an abundance of opportunities
for learning about the world around us.
Visit our interactive website Virtual Quarry to learn more.
Teaching resources available: You will find 20 educational units
across key stages 1 – 4 covering science, geography, education
for sustainable development and citizenship. All have been written
by teachers. You can adapt the standard QCA schemes of work while
still meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum. We
have also produced a whirlwind tour document
specifically for teachers.

House pupils highlighting Key Stage 3 Geography topics.
Quarries play an important part in all our lives; they are places
of work and not for play. You should only visit a quarry as part
of an organised trip by initiation from the Quarry Manager.
For more information please visit the QPA
Stay Safe website.
If your School or local interest group would like a supervised
tour of a quarry or talk by a local Quarry Manager please contact
us if you would like help or advice on setting up a visit.
