  • 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 fabulous time with Shooting Stars! The children really engaged with the coaches and loved learning new skills. They made it so much fun, even for the little ones and the children really warmed to the coaches straight away. We were very impressed! - Emma Robey

    Thank you to Paul for a great session. The scouts really enjoyed themselves, and many of them learned a new skill juggling which is no mean feat! I have heard back from one parent that their scout went home and tried to teach them to juggle, so you clearly inspired them! - Louise Honeysett

    Jebb was superb, turned up at time stated, exceptionally courteous and appreciative to the adults, huge and varied range of equipment, brilliant with the kids, held their attention with an excellent display, whilst instructing them on how to deal with the kit themselves in a safe way. Couldnt rate him any higher, I have recommended Shooting Stars to our District Cub team. It was a really rewarding evening, thanks to all. It was absolutely perfect! Q13: Other features Really couldnt add anything to our experience in a large village hall. Maybe if it was a larger venue it may be improved by a microphone? Really cannot say how thrilled we all were with this event, we've had other circus events, they genuinely weren't a patch on Shooting Stars - Anne Kearns
