Inspiring, Authentic, ActiveCurriculum-Linked Learning

The Danny offers schools unique learning opportunities - cruises through the private Liverpool Dock system exploring history and geography, oral history projects connecting children in Halton to key actors in local canal history, hands-on workshops on board in Canning Dock, and learning about rivers through cruises on the River Weaver.


What we offer

Our learning activities use the Danny and the waterways to creatively explore topics from the national curriculum for KS2 in history, geography and art and design. Search the area tabs to see details of learning programme in LIverpool, Ellesmere Port and on the River Weaver. Contact Cathriona Bourke, the Danny's learning manager at [email protected] with any queries.

Based on a class size of on average 30 pupils, we charge £60 for a workshop on board the Danny and £135 for a cruise. Activities are geared primarily towards Key Stage 2 pupils, but we offer Key Stage 1 workshops while static in Canning Dock (history/music/art and design), and can scale the workshop offer for KS3 or for pupils with specific needs. 

We have a limited number of workshops and cruises available, so early booking is recommended. Contact learning manager Cathriona Bourke [email protected] for more information.
