  • 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.

    Steve engaged the beavers well using humour and a positive manner. All beavers even my most sensitive engaged throughout the session. The session was well paced a good change over of activities and most importantly a lot of fun! All the beavers were asking if he could do the session again. I had a lot of immediate responses from parents who said that their child could not stop talking about it. Parent message: #### had a fab night this evening. #### was bouncing off the walls she had so much fun. Thank you Thanks Steve for a fantastic event, we will definitely book you for a circus camp! - Jackie Stevens

    The Brownies had an excellent evening learning new circus skills but also revisiting skills they learned last year and developing them, like juggling. They really enjoyed the flower sticks and the Ball & Cups which were new activities. Thank you so much - Rachel rowe
