Radley's Countryside Centre, which opened in 2005, aims to provide practical hands-on experience of animal husbandry. Radley has had a beagle pack since 1940, but this new venture also includes cattle, sheep, pigs, ducks, pheasants and chickens, with rare breeds such as Oxford sandy & black pigs, and Jacob sheep.
Boys can volunteer to work at the Countryside Centre as part of the Monday activity programme and at weekends. As well as legal hunting activities with the beagles, boys can become involved in ferretting, pest control and clay pigeon shooting.
The Centre is open to visits from other schools and community groups, who should contact Simon Timbrell, the Countryside Officer, for further information, via the main school number below.
