Here at Rugeley we find education to be a serious matter and strive to provide schools with educational programmes that greatly benefit their pupils!

Rugeley Power Station in the Community – Education Services

At Rugeley Power Station we have always been conscious of our role in the local community and have been proud to provide free education services for many local schools and community groups. For over 10 years this service has been focused on promoting knowledge and understanding of power generation and the usage of electricity as well as educating on the natural environment

However, due to unforeseen circumstances Rugeley Power Station is unfortunately no longer able to provide these education programmes. We would like to extend our appreciation to all who have participated in the programmes previously and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.

We are pleased to announce that we have secured funding from Engie to offer a new programme called “Trees for Schools.” This project aims to encourage schools to plant trees in their schools grounds. If you are interested further information and an application form can be found on the Staffordshire Forest Schools Cluster Group website at or you can contact Katie Busfield on 01889 572100/07989 492768.

Applications need to be in for the 10th December. We will be looking to plant trees in February/March of 2016.
