The Bisley Approach

A Standardised Instructional Clay Shooting Package for Novices

On the Bisley estate we are able to offer tuition and practice for all of the Clay Shooting disciplines.  Ourselves, Bisley Shooting Ground, offers Sporting Clay Shooting, and our sister company The National Clay Shooting Centre, offers Skeet and Trap Clay Shooting.

We are considered a national centre of excellence.

The sporting clay shooting takes place on Cottesloe Heath which won the 2020 Shooting Awards for the best Clay Shooting Ground in the country.  Whilst the National Clay Shooting Centre is the training ground for the British Shooting Team for skeet and trap shooting, having originally been built to host the 2002 Commonwealth Games.

Training and instruction is important to us at Bisley and we have introduced a standardised instructional package for novice clients, called The Bisley Approach.

The Bisley Approach 

Its purpose is to capture best practice taken from all disciplines to arrive at a consistent approach to instruction, fit for a national centre of excellence for Clay Shooting.

What does it consist of?

It consists of a six lesson program that will introduce a novice to the sport of shotgun shooting in their preferred discipline, Game shooting, English Sporting, Trap or Skeet. Each lesson is designed to build on previous lessons, arriving at a clear objective at the end.


Objectives could be the Duke of Edinburgh’s award scheme, a first Game shoot, registered competition, or even preparation for a shotgun licence application.

The Bisley Approach is purely designed for novice shooters who wish to take up clay shooting in a structured manner.

Clients will be given a shooting record book to monitor progress, with a certificate of achievement at the end.
