School Visits and After School Clubs

Falconry and Owl School Visits

Having birds of prey involved in Schools and After School Clubs allows a unique opportunity to teach all ages to build an in-depth knowledge into birds and nature.   Falconry School Visits - Siberian Eagle OwlWhether for Art, History, Biology, Geography, extra-curicular activities or simply for a unique experience, birds of prey in the classroom give that extra learning excitement.

A typical session (up to one hour in length) will consist of 6 birds.  The team adapt the content of each session according to the age group. As well as the children flying the birds, we talk about the physical adaptations of birds of prey and owls, also the habitat, habits and diet of these birds in the wild. These sessions are performed inside (preferably a school hall), so we never have to worry about the unpredictable weather!

The sessions are undertook in a fun, unforgettable and educational manner. The team currently undertake over 100 school sessions a year and they are always a hit for the children, and the staff!

Here is a taster of what we undertake, at a recent visit to Cheltenham Prep.

“Alistair brought 4 owls and 4 falcons to visit my class as part of our ‘Predator’ topic and what a fantastic time we had. All the children held a bird and were transfixed by them flying around our school hall. I can thoroughly recommend Hawkeye Falconry to anyone who is looking for a fascinating experience.”

Everybody learnt some interesting and fascinating facts during the presentation which tied in to their learning in the classroom. The students and staff were thrilled to be able to get so close to the birds and in particular being able to fly them across the room – some great memories made for the students!
