Thank you

Martin from Xtreme Falconry returned again this year with another amazing presentation of birds of prey.  Students in the 11s and 14s were treated to a display of iconic species from five different bird of prey groups.

On show were the White Tailed Sea Eagle, Harris Hawk, Peregrine Falcon, Kestrel, European Eagle Owl, Barn Owl and the huge Scottish Sea Eagle.  Martin’s presentation complimented the Biology GCSE syllabus by focussing on: how these birds adapt to their surroundings to allow them to hunt particular prey; food chains and webs; flight; predation; habitat destruction and poisoning via pollution; and conservation. Martin also allowed some of the birds of prey to fly over the audience.

The birds flew very low and close to the pupils and this demonstrated how, in their own surroundings, they hug the rock faces to guard their nests from predators. The group were also able to witness how the Barn Owl flies close to the ground highlighting how these birds have adapted the way they fly in order to hunt for their prey; voles found in the fields.

In December our Pre-Prep staff ran the Santa race at Richmond Park and raised £1,750 in aid of the Princess Alice Hospice. Our 14s and 15s pupils also thought about how they could make it a warmer winter for others, as they bought and wrapped presents for women and children at Sutton Women’s Centre.  Read more...
