Our centre is perfectly set up to cater for school groups of all sizes and visits can be tailored to your exact needs. We are very flexible, as we can work with small classes or whole year groups.
The work we do is designed to be interactive and informative. The sessions work well as topic enhancement, or just as an end of term treat! The most popular part of our sessions are the flying demonstrations. This allows the pupils to see a variety of raptors fly and interact with the falconer. There are plenty of opportunities for pupils to get involved with handling the birds.
Alongside the flying demonstrations, we also offer classroom based teaching. This is an excellent opportunity for the pupils to study the birds in greater detail, and to put topics into context.
We have an exciting team of hawks, falcons, owls and eagles of all shapes and sizes, experienced at working in an environment around children. Many of the birds are native to this country, which encourages the pupils to connect more with their own environment.
We set aside Mondays and Tuesdays for schools to visit us so that you have the centre to yourselves for the day.
