Schools & Teachers

We are a bird of prey conservation and education centre with 25 years of experience and are home to around 200 birds. We have recently opened a new reptile house which houses around 20 different species, two of which are critically endangered.

We can offer unique opportunities to learn outside of the classroom, where our learning sessions are linked to the national curriculum and are suitable for all ages and abilities. These sessions are interactive for all by using live animals and bio facts. You can choose from sessions made for foundation, key stages 1, 2, 3, 4, and post 16 or you can contact us in order to taylor make your visit to make it extra special.
