Teign School in Devon is incorporating the restoration and biodiversity work of WBB Minerals into it’s A-level curriculum.
Biology and geography students spent a day in June at the company’s Newton Abbot ball clay operations where they saw tangible examples of vital elements of their studies.
A follow-up visit is planned for September, at which point the students will start recording and monitoring changes in biodiversity in the field.
Gary Stringer, WBB Minerals’ UK resources director, said: ‘We’ve forged close links with Teign School over the years and we’re delighted that our work as a company can support the A-level curriculum of these students.
‘Our ongoing restoration and biodiversity projects throughout the region offer prime examples of best practice in quarry restoration and will give the students first-hand experience of how industry and nature can work hand in hand.’
