  • 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.

    We had a great evening with 22 Scouts learning how to juggle and use a diablo. The feedback Ive received from Scouts indicate that they enjoyed the evening. Some wanted more time to do the other things that were available, but I completely appreciate that in a two hour slot you can only squeeze so much in that is going to be meaningful. They learned some great basic skills from Steve, whose a very good teacher, and were going to be building on these. highly recommended - Alexis Hunter-Craig

    A fantastic 2 days at New Moston Primary School. The circus really showed children how fun science can be and raised lots of interest which led to an inventions week based on what they had learnt throughout the day. Thank you for a memorable couple of days, Dave was brilliant. - Daniel Wilson

    Paul was fantastic. He ran 2 sessions back to back - an hour with the beavers, then an hour and a half with the cubs. He was patient, enthusiastic, helpful and funny from start to finish and all the kids had a fantastic time. We will definately be using them again. - Robert West

    Milo was an excellent instructor. He made both the children and staff fully enjoy the experience. The way he ran the sessions made it easy for children to have a go on lots of equipment. Im sure the children will remember this for a long time. Thank you. - Laura Holt
