  • 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.

    Fantastic workshop which kept all our 14-18 year olds and leaders fully engaged throughout. It was so great to see everyone learn to juggle! We appreciated the structured part of the workshop and the free time at the end. It was really well run by Paul. Ill definitely be recommending you to others from our organisation for future camps. - Charlotte Barker

    Circus Workshop - Brownies Mini-Festival
    Shooting Stars circus skills provided an excellent focus for our Brownie mini festival. After an initial safety briefing, the girls could dip in and out of the session with help provided when they needed it. The instructor adapted well to the space available and the fact that it wasnt a formal workshop session. At the end he performed some stunts and tricks for the girls and parents to watch. We would definitely use Shooting Stars again. - Margaret Formby
