  • 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.

    The Brownies had a fantastic evening with Mylo showing them the tricks of being a circus performer. Was great fun right from start to finish. Mylo made everything fun including listening to the instructions and the rules of play. A huge thank you for such a wonderful evening where the girls gained their circus skills badge and the leaders got to join in too!! A great Christmas Treat. - Joanne Lance

    Paul was friendly, enthusiastic and completely on the same wave length as our Scouts. He interacted well with them and helped those who were struggling. He kept everyone engaged for the whole 2 hours with lots of smiles all round. Everyone had a sense of achievement at the end. A great evening. Thank you. - Vikki Corke

    From start to finish the facilitator Dave engaged with the children. They thoroughly engaged every minute of the session, in fact did not want him to leave. They learnt so much in a short time, everyone learnt new skills, plus adapted ways of doing different things with apparatus available, took great pleasure in showing everyone what they had learnt at the end and they will remember this for a long time, stating it was the best day ever. Excellent, I will pass this on to other groups and recommend your service, which I have already done, but reiterate what a great time everyone has, great experience. Thank you from everyone at St.Hilda`s - Janet. - ST.HILDA`S SCOUT GROUP
