"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! From the start of the booking to the finish today the service has been nothing short of exemplary and I am already looking for the opportunity to book this again"

"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"
"Hi Clive I am e-mailing just to say a Huge Thank You for your team last weekend at our Guiding 100 event. All the girls and leaders had a fabulous time. Thank You"

"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! "

"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"

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"

“Jon was brilliant and the workshop was amazing. The students really engaged with him and his energy was great! The students loved it especially the balancing feather part they are still talking about this today. All students were completely engaged and most of them showed off a skill and stood up in front of their peers which is amazing for them.”

"I just wanted to drop you a quick email to let you know how much of a resounding success the session was last week. The managers really enjoyed it and I'm confident that they are all juggling and entertaining customers, in the stores as I type! John was an absolute star ... he held everyone's attention and amazed them with his skills and ability as well as his patience! "

Benefits of Circus Skills

Recent Scientific research has shown the value of Circus workshops 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.
Why book Circus Sensible to run circus workshops for your event? Book us with one of our Beautiful Circus Tents and that alone will make your event into something much more special. If we take our Big Top into your School for a day of shows and circus skills workshops, just watch the children’s faces as they see the tent on the school field as they arrive. Have a look at our web pages and videos to get an idea of the difference we make. Also, circus skills offer a huge range of benefits to children and adults of all ages and abilities. Perhaps the greatest benefit of having a go at Circus skills is that almost anyone can achieve so much in such a short time, giving the participant a great sense of achievement and immediate positive feedback from those around them. This leads to a more positive self image and an increase in self confidence in many children. Many of our circus workshops in schools also include time for the participants to demonstrate the circus skills they have been learning.
