  • 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 from Shooting Stars came to one of our Brownie meetings and from the outset took charge of the girls in an engaging and entertaining manner. From balancing tricks, through juggling to stilt walking and riding unicycles, Steve challenged the girls to achieve what they thought impossible! A fantastic fun filled evening that I highly recommend to Girlguiding units and other youth groups. - Claire Lambert

    The Brownies had a brilliant time. Everyone felt they had achieved something by the end of the session - lots of smiles! Steve was enthusing and friendly, but also made sure everyone used the equipment safely. The peacock feathers were a great introductory activity that enabled the girls to achieve a first success quickly and gave them confidence to try other things. We packed a lot into a short session in our limited meeting time. Very positive experience for the leaders and helpers too - lots of opportunites to get involved and not just look on. Above all, the workshop offered the Brownies experiences and expertise that we couldnt offer, and the level and language were pitched just right. Thank you, Steve - it was great! - Katie Croft
