  • 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.

    Could not have asked for a better evening for the young people. Our instructor was brilliant and kept the young people interested and engaged all evening. I will definitely be recommending shooting stars to fellow scouting colleagues and will be booking with shooting stars in the future. A great evening for young people and adults all round! - Rebecca

    The Greatest Showgirl Day
    Steve came out to our Girlguiding Activity Day on 4 November to keep 120 girls aged 5-10 occupied with Circus Skills. The Rainbows and Brownies absolutely loved the Circus Skills Workshop and were so proud to show off their new skills during the showcase at the end of the day. I can 100% recommend Steve and Shooting Stars Circus - we had a brilliant day and the service was impeccable. - Becky Powell

    Steve was incredibly friendly and engaging. All our young people had the best time and learned a variety of skills during the day! I couldn't believe the value for money. We would never have been able self lead activities of such high quality. I literally have no criticism or anything to improve! - Alison Crotch-Harvey

    Circus Performer Badge & Christmas Party
    Brilliant time had by all! Wonderful to hear the laughter and chatter as the girls and leaders tried new skills and felt very proud of their accomplishments. Steve and Stuart explained things very simply and wandered round the hall patiently helping where needed and constantly encouraging everyone. The two hours whizzed by and left the girls wanting more. Parents have fed back that they had excited girls busily telling about the fun they had had. Will definately recommend! Couldn't have asked for a better evening for our Christmas event.... time flew and all had tremendous fun! We didnt have time to cover all skills so we will certainly need a repeat performance! - Brenda Chadwick
