    Tom was fantastic!!! We had slight changes to a lot of our day, and he just went with the flow and was very flexible. The children loved him, he made the final performance to parent's outstanding. You weren't the company we had at my old school after all, but so so so much better!

    Can you just pass on our thanks and appreciation to Tim. He was wonderful. Very patient, entertaining and enthusiastic. We all have a great time. Even some adults and children who caught glimpses of him today said how amazing it looked.

    We wanted to say a big thank you from the MaDFest team for entertaining the kids all day in what was rather soggy conditions at times. I have had so much good feedback about the event and the kids zone.

  • “I loved the fact that 'I can't' just wasn't allowed and the grown ups were encouraged to push their own boundaries as an example to the kids- well done! Who knew I could hula!!“

  • “It was interesting to watch the 'cool' Year 6's drop their guards and throw themselves into the activities with such gusto!“

  • “One of our younger children came up to me at lunchtime and yelled “this is the BEST DAY EVER!!!“

  • “Not only did they entertain our pupils (and staff) but actively involved them in developing a range of circus skills. The performances and workshops fully supported our creative curriculum making learning fun and exciting“

  • “They did more than just teach they entertained, inspired and went ‘above and beyond“

  • “ Just wanted to say what a FANTASTIC day we have had today. I have never seen so many smiles on the children's faces for the whole day. Every child from our Nursery children to Year 6 (and the adults), have had a brilliant day. We wish we could have had longer!!! “

  • “No matter what the weather was like, when we were in the tent we were in a whole new place. The three guys that came were absolutely brilliant. It was so well organised and no hassle at all. One child left school saying "that was the best day of my life“

  • “Pete was amazing and was so flexible with the day to ensure all of our children managed to get the best of every workshop. Our staff loved it too - we all learnt something new and the children loved the fact that they could something better than us! The workshops inspired our writing for the week and we have had some amazing circus-themed stories“

Recent Scientific research has shown the value of Circus Skills 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.

Stacks Image 265
Activities such as Circus skills have been used with great success as an educational tool, as an aid to learning as well as therapeutically with children at risk and with children with special needs. Autistic children have been observed to respond particularly well to Circus skills in schools.
Circus skills are an opportunity for children and adults to discover and develop skills such as Concentration, Information retention, Concept visualisation, hand eye co-ordination and self awareness. These skills can then be used in many other settings including social situations and in conventional educational settings whilst learning the core subjects.

"I just wanted to say what a fantastic day we had last week at the circus! The day was amazing; hilarious, perfectly pitched and lots of fun! Enjoyed by all the children (and adults!) we have had wonderful feedback from the day. Enormous thanks to you and your team, especially Kyle and Andy who had us in stitches!" Emily, St Dunstan's College, London.

"Your team were awesome! All of the staff and children loved it all and could not believe how talented they all were. They all had a calm, lovely manner with the children and all the children went away saying that it was EPIC! Of which was fed back by the parents. A huge thank you!!" Emma, Amesbury School, Hindhead.

“Thank you for being so flexible throughout the day from set up to break down (quite literally!!!) and just doing what was needed. The kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves as did the adults - especially the juggling lawyer!
I loved the fact that 'I can't' just wasn't allowed and the grown ups were encouraged to push their own boundaries as an example to the kids- well done! Who knew I could hula!!!!!!” Andra Patterson, Godstowe Rocks.

“I wanted to say a very big thanks to the incredibly lovely circus men that came and worked tirelessly all day Saturday and were then thanked with a torrential downpour to pack up in.
They were all amazing, the children and parents absolutely loved the three performances and thought the stilt walker was the bees knees.
Please do pass on our thanks to the four lovely circus chaps who came on Saturday. They were truly brilliant.” - Tiggey May, Coldfall Primary, London.

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!

"Once again a truly memorable and professional afternoon of entertainment. The entire school were roaring with laughter and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. It takes some doing to keep 527 children all entertained and Circus Sensible did just that. I cannot praise or recommend you enough. Thank-you again - what a fantastic way to kick-start the children's half term holiday."
- Hylton Cornish, Mill Hill Primary School, Tunstall, Staffordshire

Hi Clive, I just wanted to give you some feedback on Richard's visit to our school last Friday.
He was spectacular! The day was a massive success and enjoyed by all. He catered for students of all abilities and engaged all students and staff in his workshops and performances. Richard came equipt with many circus props, even more than I expected. The tightrope was a real treat for the students and even some brave staff. I was so impressed by Richard that I wanted to tell you how fabulous he was. I hope that we can book him again in the future.
Many thanks,
Deborah Fay - Crowdys Hill School, Swindon, Wiltshire.
