A day at the Willow’s Bird of Prey Centre is a wonderfully interactive learning experience offering pupils the opportunity to be immersed in nature for the day. Set in 6 acres of grounds, ranging from beautiful woodlands to our stunning blueberry meadow. With over 60 birds of prey comprised of around 30 different species – from owls to eagles – there is plenty on view, plus spectacular flying demonstrations and keeper’s talks to keep your school group entertained and occupied.
A school visit with us includes:
- All school groups are given an introductory talk on arrival from one of our experienced members of staff. This talk will be tailored to suit the age of pupils in your group and will give an overview of the work we do and the birds and animals that we have in our care.
- Ample free coach parking with easy set down and pickup.
- Free recce for school group leader in advance
- Free driver admission
- Fully accessible buildings and grounds
We have a full daily timetable of activities that your school group can take part in, including watching our world-class flying demonstrations. On top of these activities, we offer a range of on-site workshops that have been designed to give a more hands-on approach to learning.
All of our activities are listed below and are based on class size groups of between 12 and 30 pupils, but some can be adapted for larger groups or the itinerary arranged to run smaller sessions throughout a visit.
