  • Recent research has proven the benefits of circus skills in Educational Programmes. It has been successfully used as an educational tool, and has been used therapeutically with children at risk.

    Circus skills can enable pupils to discover within themselves the skills which can provide all kinds of creative solutions. Skills such as concentration, retention, conceptual understanding and self-awareness, which can be transferred to a social setting and applied to more conventional learning situations in the core subjects.

    Over the last nineteen years, we have taken our 'Circus Skills Workshops' to schools, leisure centres, youth groups, play schemes, colleges, carnivals, fetes, and special promotions around the country. The workshop consists of a circus instructor and circus equipment.

    What are the benefits of children learning outside of the classroom:

    • Cross curricular education
    • Instills enthusiasm to continue learning
    • Reinforces positive learning
    • Creative thinking
    • Unlimited possibilities & opportunities
    • Self Confidence
    • Social & Personal Development
    • Kinaesthetic Learning
    • Inclusive physical education
    • Learning to learn
    • Language skills
    • Self-esteem and self-awareness

    Pupils recall the 'Circus Week' with great pleasure. They learnt different skills, which boosted their confidence and self-esteem. The curriculum is extremely well enriched through the very wide range of clubs, visits, visitors and events, which further widen children's horizons and contribute to their personal and social development.

    Blue Peter Appearance

    We had the pleasure of teaching Andy Akinwolere, from Blue Peter, how to ride a unicycle. We had such a fun time and he was a good pupil!

    It was broadcast on 15/01/2008, but if you missed it then you can see it again here.

    Firstly I would like to thank shooting Stars and in particular Paul who drove from Birmingham Saturday morning and the very professional way that he conducted himself with the Cub Scouts and likewise the adult help. It was great to see youngsters and the older generation trying their best at the circus skills. I personally would be willing to recommend your services to any organisation wishing to look at circus skills. - Mike Rowe

    We were in a windy field on guide camp and Nick managed wonderfully well. The girls aged from 10-17 had a fantastic time trying all the many and varied activities he brought with him. Deep concentration mixed with loud laughter was the order of the afternoon from both the girls and the leaders. We knew it was a success from the comments to their parents when they collected them the following day. Thanks Nick you were great. - Mrs Sandra White

    An excellent session for both our Cubs and Scouts. Pauls interaction with all the young people was fantastic and got everyone involved, trying all the activities from the wide range of equipment he brought with him. All who took part, including the leaders had a great, fun filled evening. Highly recommended. - Dean Whitehead
