Circus Workshop

We particularly liked Craigs explanation of his own journey and the need for resilience - a quality we are keen to develop in our pupils. A fabulous experience which our children enjoyed and which gave them opportunity to develop skills of the body and the mind. - Joanna Marsh , Teacher

What a fantastic day! Steve tailored the entire day to suit our needs, making the experience amazing for children, staff and parents alike! One parent even returned without his daughter to have a second go at the workshop!

The children were buzzing about the day for a while after, and we had some lovely literacy and numeracy activities that followed on from the circus workshop!

I would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking for a different, exciting and engaging day for children of any age!

Thanks so very much Steve, I hope we will be lucky enough to book you again soon :- Hayley Sutton, Head of Year

Circus Skills for 'Development Day'

Students were extremely excited and thoroughly enjoyed the activities on offer. They enjoyed using the equipment and were particularly challenged by the unrideable bike. The instructor was superb, handled the students very well and kept them entertained with his own skills. Lots of positive comments generated by staff and students. Would definately book again in the future. Thank you very much for an outstanding service. - Miss Stacie Bott, Teacher

Circus Skills Workshop

Excellent H & S talk at start and during workshop. Interest levels were 'Sky High!' All the pupils were thrilled with the day. Thanks to Paul's encouragement the more able began to tutor the more unsure pupils. Many of the pupils were amazed at the rate their skills developed, skills they didn't know they had. Their confidence has grown as a direct result of the day and there is now a waiting list for the next time you visit. I've even purchased a box of equipment from you so we can continue to practice while we wait to book the next one. I'm trying to convince other departments to contact you about the 'subject specific' classes you're developing.- Emma Poole
Visit/s: 17/12/2005

Thank you so much. Paul was fabulous with our pupils and the whole day was everything I hoped for and more. The pupils were thrilled with everything and they went home buzzing!
Our A&T do-ordinater was very impressed and has agreed to at least two more days next year so i'll be in touch after the christmas break.
I'd also like to buy some circus equipment so we can practice after school.
Thank you once again and a Merry Christmas to all of you.- Emma Poole
