An extremely short and unusual soundtrack by John Cameron who is better known for his library music output. Here is some info about the film from IMDb...

"Bullied at school and ignored and abused at home by his indifferent mother and older brother, Billy Casper (David Bradley), a 15-year-old working-class Yorkshire boy, tames and trains his pet kestrel falcon whom he names Kes. Helped and encouraged by his English teacher Mr. Farthing (Colin Welland) and his fellow students, Billy finally finds a positive purpose to his unhappy existence, until tragedy strikes."

The music unsurprisingly is orchestral and sombre with some nice flourishes. It will obviously hold more interest for those who have seen the film but soundtrack fans in general might want to check this out also.
