A Circus skills workshop in a school
"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. Circus skills workshops in schools 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."

Circus Skills workshops for Schools are suitable for Nursery, Primary, Secondary Schools and Colleges and can be integrated into many areas of the School curriculum.

"Hi Clive, Richie 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"
- Deborah Fay (Crowdys Hill School)
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.

"Complex tasks such as juggling produce significant changes to the structure of the brain, according to scientists at Oxford University.
In the journal, Nature Neuroscience, the scientists say they saw a 5% increase in white matter - the cabling network of the brain." BBC News


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.

Circus Sensible have worked nationally and internationally, with schools, community groups, charities and festivals for over 25 years. We have developed close working relationships with some of the very best tutors and performers in the industry

"Just wanted to say how fantastic Richard (Mr Sensible) was today – he had large groups of up to 40 Year 6 pupils and he managed them superbly. They all learned new skills and the sessions were also fun. His delivery was just right and control of the pupils was excellent. They were all buzzing afterwards. Would thoroughly recommend we do this again." - Freda, St Richard Gwyn Catholic High School, Barry, Wales.

"John was great right from the start of the day. He had a great way of speaking to the children and made it a fun day for all. Our children thoroughly loved the range of activities he brought and he explained everything in such a simple way that they could all succeed. Really was a pleasure to see them all so focussed and engaged in the day, very worthwhile!" - Rachel Almaliki - Havercroft Academy, Wakefield, Yorkshire.

"The day was absolutely fantastic last year. The children and staff loved it and it created such a buzz in school. I would also like to send a massive thank you to your staff who were fantastic. So funny and entertaining from the minute they arrived to the minute they left. We have already booked our super learner event for this year and have recommended you to other schools in our area!" - Jemma Ramsay, St Oswald's Primary School, York.

"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

Hi Clive, I just wanted to let you know that the circus skills training that Pete did with our Year One classes yesterday was absolutely fantastic! The children really enjoyed themselves and other teachers have been telling me today how well our demonstrators did in the assembly. Please pass our thanks and enthusiasm onto Pete :) - Emma Crilley, West View Primary, Hartlepool ( A day of Circus Skills Workshops)

An amazing day provided by Drew! He arrived early and extremely well resourced, and wasted no time in getting the reward day started! The activities were suited to the differing age groups and the children had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Even the sounding of the fire alarm he took in his stride!
Thanks again for a great day at very short notice! With regards' - Clare Cook, Hurst Drive Primary School, Waltham Cross, Herts. (A day of Circus workshops)


Two amazing gentlemen, 1 amazing day. Thank you. They were brilliant with each and every class. They did more than just teach they entertained, inspired and went ‘above and beyond’. Please pass on my thanks and praise.
(and gave me tips on better unicycling!)
Ian Kendal - St Joseph's Catholic Primary School, Hertford, Hertfordshire

Hello Clive,
Richie delivered 5 sessions as part of our Diversity day today and was really good with the children who so enjoyed it. Can you pass on our thanks. I am sure that many of them will be trying to balance all sorts of objects at home tonight and we may see the diabolos making a come back in school. Thanks again - St Bede's Catholic Middle School, Redditch

'We had the pleasure of welcoming Jon to our school as part of a special week to celebrate our recent Outstanding Ofsted Inspection. From the moment he arrived it was clear we were going to be in for a hilarious day and the laughter was never-ending from start to finish. As well as having fun the children all developed their skills of perseverance, stamina, teamwork and listening! We ended the day with a showcase assembly which lots of parents attended in order to show off what the children had been learning. This worked so well and the feedback from parents and children alike was the best I have ever heard! Well worth every penny - thank you Jon!' - Helen Sullivan, St Peter's RC Primary School, Rossendale.

Hello, Clive, The children had a fabulous time on Thursday a big thank you to James and your company. We are putting the word around to other teachers how great you are.
- Janine Dreary, Southgalde School, Nottingham

A fantastic 3 hours was enjoyed by both pupils and staff alike. James was very personable and managed to keep all of the pupils focussed throughout the whole session. The pupils will be talking about the event for some time yet - Sonja Moon, Brandeston Hall, 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


Mr Sensible was fantastic. The children were captivated and found his show amazing and hilarious! His methods of teaching the basics of scarf juggling and feather balacing ensured that all children succeeded and were engaged. The variety of equipment he brought was vast and the children really enjoyed the opportuinity to try so many different skills. A brilliant morning - thank you! - Jamie Chadwick, Boarshaw Primary School, Rochdale, Lancashire.

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.

Dear Clive, I would like to express my gratitude to all at Circus Sensible for the Fantastic day you gave everyone at Upton Priory. The children thoroughly enjoyed every second.
The children and their diabolo's have transformed playtimes, with the children happily sharing and teaching each other new tricks. It has given them a focus and activity during chill time. I cannot thank you enough for the entertainment and promotion of simple skills and basic fun Circus Sensible have introduced to the children. Thank you.
- Karen Powell, Chair of PTA, Upton Priory School, Macclesfield, Cheshire.

Just a brief letter to say thank you for the input of your team into Activity Week at Bishop Heber. Could you please pass on our sincere thanks to Neil, who did an absolutely amazing job of both entertaining and instructing the pupils (and Staff!!) with his Circus Skills workshops on Monday.
The Year 9 pupils involved in the workshops really enjoyed themselves and took away some great memories of the day. They learnt some valuable and useful lessons and can hopefully put these to productive use in the future. There were very many positive feedback comments about the day, both from pupils and staff, who also enjoyed the activities.
Once again, thank you to you and Neil for your time and enthusiasm and we hope that you can be involved again in future years.
-
Mrs G Gauterin, Bishop Heber High School, Malpas, Cheshire

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.

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.


We have been teaching and performing Circus in Schools for over 25 years. We can also come for longer, anything up to week long residencies ending with a performance by the children.
