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. These sessions are performed inside (preferably a school hall), so we never have to worry about the unpredictable weather!

The difference with our sessions are that not only are the birds flown free inside your school, BUT the children fly the birds, not us. The birds brought a long are specially trained to undertake this service and they simply love their job, as do we!!

The team will try their best to make sure that each child has the best experience possible. We involve all the children in the sessions, with around 30 being able to have a go at flying the birds to their glove. Therefore we do recommend class sizes for the sessions, although it is not a problem if this is not possible, each child will leave amazed and full of knowledge.

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 very short 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! I wish you a great summer of flying and look forward to your visit again next year.”
