Schools Information

We are happy to arrange a visit to your school to talk about pigeons in war, one loft races and pigeon racing in general. Please contact the RPRA Chief Executive for further details.

A number of schools have even built their own loft and race their own pigeons, with support from the RPRA. Contact our Development Officer, Richard Chambers, if you would like to find out more about school lofts.

Other schools take part in our One Loft Race – a local fancier breeds them a pigeon to enter in the loft, and the school follows its progress through the race programme, receiving any prize money won by that pigeon. If you would like to be involved please contact the One Loft team.
