Purdey is delighted to welcome the Royal Berkshire Shooting Group team and to combine these two outstanding brands, offering our shooting customers an expanded range of first-class products and services.

Shooting School

Established over two decades ago, the Shooting School is recognised as the finest facility of its kind, employing eight full time, professional shooting instructors and having one of the most expansive shooting grounds in the country.

A range of options is available, from one-hour private lessons to the ‘Driving Range 100’. Whether you are shooting for the first time or getting ready for the start of the season you will be accompanied by an instructor who will guide you round the school to make sure you can access the full range of stands that are on offer. It is possible to simulate all types of game birds such as grouse, high pheasant, teal etc. and any of them can be incorporated into a ‘DR100’ practice round.

Lessons or practise sessions can be booked from Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 5.30pm, depending on the season. If you would like to find out more, please call +44 (0)1491 672 900.
