  • 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.

    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!

    We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening, with our Beavers and Scouts and of course leaders. They all learnt new skills and hopefully they can carry them on in the future. We would definitely recommend Shooting Stars for all ages. - 25th Birkenhead Beavers

    We had shooting stars to our Brownie group, the girls loved it and learned new skills even earning a badge. He was very patient with the girls and explained things in a level which they could understand. Would definite recommend to another group we would definatley have them again its just with us being a voluntary group the cost is hard to find. - Lynne Burns

    It was an excellent evening. Paul held the Cubs attention throughout. They had great fun, yet he kept complete control. Id thoroughly recommend it to other childrens groups. We have a two year cycle at Cubs, but we will definitely use Shooting Stars again. - Sam Hurley
