The Benefits of Circus Skills Workshops

Recent Scientific research has shown the value of Circus and other physical skills in an educational environment. It has been recognised that the core skills which are utilised and developed when we learn and practice a challenging and creative activity such as Circus skills, can then be carried over into the more academic areas of education.

“Just to thank you for an AMAZING circus day yesterday. The children and staff had a fantastic time. Jon pitched the workshop really well and he had a great rapport with the children. The activities fully supported our IPC curriculum and our most recent circus unit. What I really liked was how every child was included regardless of ability and they had the opportunity to perform and master a circus skill. For some children this was a real confidence boost. The enjoyment and buzz around school throughout the day was inspiring. Also.. for the staff being able to dress up as clowns for the day was an added bonus! I will definitely recommend you to other schools.
Thanks again” - Jill Ashmore, SS Simon and Jude CEPS, Great Lever, Bolton

Hi there Clive,
Well....all the staff and I from Horndean Infants is say WOW!
Adults and children have had the most fun filled, perfect day with the A team (Kyle, Obby and Richie) today. At 6.30 am,when I met them at school, it was obviously early (for me) and pouring with rain..... But that did not stop the energy of all 3 of them from the word go! I did my bit, making them hot drinks as they pitched the tent in good spirits in the heavy rain - I knew from then that this was going to be a day to remember!
At 9am the whole school, dressed as circus characters watched the hilarious show (piched perfectly for the age of the children) and this inspired the children's writing and art work for the rest of the day back in the classroom.
The workshops throughout the daywere fast paced and enjoyable, building on children's resilience and personal and social skills.All we could have asked for was more!
We then asked if we could have a second performance to close the day as the morning had been so amazing and again, there was no hesitation - the guys were so willing and genuinely wanted to make the day special for each and every child!
We all left school with huge smiles today, all thanks to 'Circus Sensible'.... We cannot thank you enough and will definately be asking you back again in future years - if you will have us that is!
We would all recommend you to other schools too.
For us, this was the perfect end to a hard working year by both children and adults alike… Many thanks - Elisa Neil and all the staff and children and Horndean Infant School

Dear Clive, I just wanted to say again that the kids had the most fantastic day and can't stop talking about the circus skills they learnt. The activities were catered for their age exactly and they were kept busy the whole time!
Thank you for making the booking process so convenient and easy for us. We would definitely recommend your service to others and look forward to using you again in the future. - Kassandra, Menorah Foundation School, Middlesex

Hello Clive, I just wanted to feedback to you following the workshop last week.
We were really pleased with the workshop. Obby managed the young people really well. As you may be aware we are a fostering organisation so all of the young people in attendance are currently living with Foster Parents. They can be challenging at times and when together in a group this can heighten the behaviours they exhibit.
Obby showed the young people how to use all the different equipment clearly and with humour. He spent time with those that struggled and encouraged them when necessary. He was able to sense when to move things along and made sure that everyone felt included, even staff!
At the end of the day, young people had the opportunity to show Foster Parents what they had learnt which was lovely to see.
I hope that we can offer this workshop again in the future.
Thanks again. Lisa Moreno, By the Bridge, Bridge of Don, Scotland (Circus Skills workshops.)

As a part of our reward structure, we invited your circus in. The organisation was excellent and over 600 students were completely gripped by your antics! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to other high schools. Brilliant! - Sian Hughes, Haywood Academy, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire (A day with our 'baby' Big Top)

Just wanted to let you know what a fabulous day we had here at The Oval School on Wednesday. Everyone really enjoyed the shows and the workshops and we would like to say a huge thank you to Harry, Steve and Jonathon for all their hard work on the day they were great!! - Lesley Evans, The Oval School, Birmingham

Our Circus Sensible day was wonderful. The children were totally engaged in all the activities. The staff had fun too, two of us learning to hoopla hoop at fifty plus! We have used the day to inspire storytelling based on a circus theme and many of the activities we did have been mentioned in the stories. It was a truly memorable day. Keep up the good work!

Dear Clive, Just wanted to thank you for the great programme that Obby ran for us tonight. It was a great success – we had lots of good feedback from those attended.
Obby was fantastic with both the kids and the adults – he inspired a sense of fun and humour which helped to make it an evening the community will remember for many years!
Best wishes - Rabbi Alan Garber, Shenley United Jewish Community, Hertfordshire.

Dear all at Circus Sensible,
Thank you so much for such a fun filled day! All of the children really enjoyed the workshops and our visitor James was brilliant! The children are still chanting "James Sensible" down the corridors! James was extremely engaging and all involved were really impressed by him. Thanks again for your expertise! Will definitely recommend the company! - Charlotte Harvey, Lakenheath Primary school, Suffolk

Hi Clive,
Just wanted to let you know what a brilliant day we had with John Sensible on Tuesday. The children were fascinated from the moment they saw John.
The children loved the performance and have a fab time practicing circus skills. Even the teachers learnt a few new tricks!!!
Fun had by everyone - Louise Goodison, Greswell School, Denton, Tameside

I just want to say a very big thankyou for the excellent day of circus skills that you provided for our year 3/4 children today. The organisation and timimg of the day was smooth and appropriate. The activities that you provided were enjoyed fully by all of the children (and teachers!). As one of their teachers, I recognised that you brought out confidence and motivation in all of the children and at all times you were in control of their behaviour and their learning. Your rapport with the children was lovely to watch.
The children thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities including juggling, plate spinning and feather balancing. It was also great that they had the opportunity to have a go at other activities too.
I would highly recommend you and I have passed your details to one of our senior leaders for future events. - Cath Lawton
St Gregory's Catholic Academy, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire

‘The guys at Circus Sensible were fantastic! At both our workshops their encouragement and enthusiasm was infectious with children and parents of all ages getting involved. They had the right amount of comedy and interaction that kept even the youngest of children engaged, from balancing feathers to spinning plates it was great to see everyone having an amazing time, losing inhibitions, gaining confidence and learning new skills’ - Cheryl Tracy
Monmouthshire Housing Association

'Just wanted to say a massive thank you for coming to provide the circus skills workshops for our summer school. Once again, it has gone down a treat and we will certainly be booking again next year if we get the funding.
Obviously, I will promote you guys as and when I can to others that I come into contact with.
Thanks again' - Adey Greaves
Student Support Coordinator, Merrill Academy,
Derby.

Hi Clive, thank you so much for yesterday. The children all had a fantastic time. It was lovely to see even the quietest of pupils become so animated and involved in your sessions. Also it was interesting to watch the 'cool' Year 6's drop their guards and throw themselves into the activities with such gusto! - Helen Courtney, Aldford Primary School, Chester.

Hi Clive, many thanks for coming over to Kelsall. It really was an excellent evening inspiring both the young people (and the leaders) with a great range of stuff to do. We all really appreciated the way you introduced each activity and got the young people engaged in having a go at something new. I know it has resulted in an outbreak of juggling in a number of households round the village. Many thanks and hope to catch up with you again soon. - Daniel Gaskarth, Kelsall Youth Club, Chester, Cheshire.

Hi Clive, I just wanted to say thank you for sending such inspiring tutors for the workshops at the school. We completed a pupil evaluation of the day and it was overwhelmingly positive - needless to say we will be booking you again next year. Thank you so much!
- Tanwen Fisk Spalding High, Lincolnshire.

Dear Clive, On behalf of the Variety At Work Committee, we would like to sincerely thank you for attending our Big Top party!
Your contribution helped us to achieve so much and ensure the children and their carers who attended the party had a wonderful time. We are very grateful for your support and hope we work with you in the future.
- Glenda Shiner, Chairman of Variety at Work.

Just a quick email to say a huge thank-you for the fantastic day provided by Circus Sensible. Quite simply, in the two weeks of various agencies providing activities at our summer school, your company has provided the gold standard by which all other agencies that work in school should be judged!
- Roger Boulton, University Academy, Birkenhead

Thank you so very much for a wonderful day and evening at St Paul's Primary School in Hereford. The children had a truly wonderful day and have been buzzing about it ever since. Please do pass our sincere thanks to the rest of your team; it was a real pleasure to have you all here for the day. I hope we will be in touch in the future for another booking.
- Rachel Read, Friends of St Paul's Primary School, Hereford

Hello Clive,I wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you for the circus entertainment that you provided for us on Friday. Jane and Klas were absolutely fantastic and we had some great feedback from our residents about them. They really did go down really well at the event so please could you pass on my thanks to them both.I will be sure to keep your contact details on file in case we have a similar event in the future.
Thanks again!
- Hayley Moore, Rosebery Housing Association

A HUGE thank you to you all for the most amazing party yesterday. Everyone had a fabulous time & you all helped to make some very special memories thank you so much!!!
- Susie & the gang (after Hannah and Beckies joint 13th Birthday party with our Big Top)

Just a short note to say just how much the children in my class have enjoyed the event.  Many of the children overcame difficulties such as balance and co-ordination to achieve success.  Your manner with the children was excellent, being funny, amusing and making the children strive for excellence.  This has been one of the best days that the children have ever had (according to them- I can’t understand why they prefer your lessons rather than the literacy or maths lessons that I teach) Anyway, I have to say i have never laughed so much or been so proud of my bunch of children.  They cannot stop talking about it.
Thank you again it was a wonderful day.
- Debbie Aldread Assistant Headteacher, Pilsley Primary

Circus Sensible provided a FANTASTIC week long contribution to Girlguiding Wirral's Centenary Celebrations. Stilt walkers, interactive dance, drumming workshops, circus shows and skills, they provided workshops so the girls could be involved in the opening ceremony and they provided the most fantastic fire show for our closing. They provided the carnival atmosphere they promised. They surpassed our expectations and that of many of our leaders and girls and we could not recommend them highly enough. Can't wait to have another event we can use them for! THANKYOU PapaClive & Crew!!!!!!!!!!!!
- Linda Smallthwaite, Wirral Girl Guides.

I have used circus sensible for a number of years at the Wirral Food and Drink Festival and each year they deliver a fantastic service. The tent and gear is new and always clean, they work tirelessly over our two day event to deliver entertaining shows and circus workshops to both children and adults. i would happily recommend them for any event wishing to offer great children's entertainment at affordable prices....looking forward to having them back in 2012 with 2 tents,performances,workshops,a stilt walker, balloon modeller and face painter...need i say more??? - Andrew Pimbley, Wirral Food Festival.

Circus Sensible ran a day of circus skills workshops at our Primary school.Clive was wonderful and engaged the children in all key stages. The children really enjoyed the day and gained a lot from their activities, remaining focussed and on task whilst having fun. We would recommend 'Circus Sensible' to anyone thinking of a curriculum enrichment day.
- Milton St. John's School, Tameside.

The show was fantastic and very funny. It is so nice to see a show that the adults can enjoy too!
- A parent, Merridale School, Wolverhampton

It was the best day of my life

A Day with Circus Sensible can be anything from a day of Circus Skills workshops up to Shows, circus skills workshops and Circus shows in one of our Beautiful 'baby' Big Tops. Circus skills include Juggling, Stiltwalking, Plate spinning etc. Shows in our Circus tents can last up to an hour and involve lots of audience participation. Entertaining for all ages. For Circus skills in schools, please see our Circus in schools pages. Our Circus tents are also available for hire, and we can provide Walkabout entertainment in the form of Stiltwalkers, Balloon Modellers, Unicyclists and Jugglers. There's even more though! What about adding on Facepainting, Henna Tattoo, or a pupptet show, a close up magician. If it's not listed here, we can still probably organise it! So, although we specialise in the Circus skills and workshops side of things, anything is possible!
