About Our Sessions …
A session consists of 5/6 birds (normally owls with a falcon). The sessions are usually undertaken inside (ideally a school hall or similar), so we never have to worry about the unpredictable weather! Although we are certainly able to relocate outside, if this is preferred.
The difference with our sessions is – not only are the birds flown free inside your school, but your children fly the birds. The birds brought a long are specially trained to undertake this service and they simply love their job, as do we!!
The normal length of each session is 1 hour. Although we are also able to undertake 30 minute sessions as well – this normally works well with younger age groups. We involve all the children in the sessions, with around 30, in a 1 hour session, being able to have a go at flying the birds to their glove.
We recommend class sizes for each session. Although it is not a problem if this is not suitable, each child will leave amazed and full of knowledge.
Our team currently undertake many school sessions a year and they are always a hit for the children, and staff! If you would like the team to focus on a particular subject, i.e. owls, biology, history etc. the team will adapt the session to suit.
First 1 Hour Session – £150
Each Additional Hour Session – £95
Maximum of 4 x 1 Hour Sessions Per Day. Minimum booking of 1 hour (or 2 x 30 minute sessions)
To proceed further, please get in contact with us, describing the age groups and numbers, you are wanting to provide the experience to. We will then work with you to build a suitable itinerary. We do love attending schools and we want to help!
THANK YOU! Really, thank you for all that you did today to make the experience such a special one for the boys – they have not stopped talking about you since! Do keep in touch.
Alistair brought 4 owls and 2 falcons to visit my class as part of our ‘Predator’ topic and what a fantastic time we had. All the children flew 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.
Thank you for your visit last Tuesday and a wonderful display again from the birds at Hawkeye Falconry UK. 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.
The children at school learnt so much and thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. Thank you.
I was over the moon with the professional and high quality experience our Year 3 children received. Pitched fantastically and completely met our needs for an interactive, informative and entertaining experience. Many thanks and we will look forward to inviting you back next year.
Thank you for coming to visit us again. The boys haven’t stopped talking about their afternoon flying the birds. See you next year!
