  • 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 only reason we wouldnt use you again is because we try each year to offer different activities. If we want a Circus skills workshop we will be back! - Morecambe Carnival

    Mylo was excellent with the girls. He kept them and the leaders entertained all day and we all learnt new skills. Girls grew in confidence as the day went on and everyone had a lot of fun. Was a great days activity on our Brownie Holiday. - Zoe

    Summer Camp
    We were extremely impressed with the service provided! We had 90 teenagers and 37 leaders on our Summer Camp, and weve often found it hard keeping everyone engaged. Shooting Stars were utterly excellent, with a massive variety of activities and skills to learn. I think we were all upset we could only book them for one afternoon! I would heartily recommend the instructors: friendly, extremely clear, and brilliant at working with large groups. Genuine class! - Daniel Woodfield

    The 25th St Albans Brownies had an amazing evening. The level of skills and instruction was perfectly pitched for their age group. They were captured right from the beginning and thoroughly enjoyed learning new skills. A lovely way to end our Summer Term. Thank you . - Helen Elliott

    Our holiday club had great fun with these activities, there was something for each child to try, even though we had an age range of 3 to 11. The instructor was patient and praised each child for their achievement, however small! Will definitely book again. - Gill Taylor
