"Just wanted you to know what an amazing day both children and adults had on Wednesday.
The children came back to class animated and there was a definite buzz about circuses, from both boys and girls.  The peacock feathers are definitely a hit.  The adults enjoyed the difference of the activity and the obvious exhilaration the children experienced."

A Circus workshop in a school with our Circus tent
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.

All our staff are very experienced, have a wide range of Circus and performance skills and have CRB certificates. We have full Public Liability Insurance and can supply Risk Assessments on request.

For details of all our Schools workshops in St Albans and the UK please explore our website or send us a message.

Circus skills workshops in schools offer a huge range of benefits to children and adults of all ages and abilities. Often a Circus workshop in school is the only chance a child will have to have a go at these skills.
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 skills workshops also include time for the participants to demonstrate the circus skills they have been learning.
Circus skills also help develop and improve concentration skills. This is particularly evident in those children with shorter attention spans. When we run Circus skills workshops in schools the teachers are often amazed that one or more children who usually have a problem concentrating are doing better than anyone else in the class!
Learning Circus skills also offers great benefits in terms of physical co-ordination and physical fitness. Circus workshops fit very well into the school curriculum under PE and co-ordination development. In fact there are many areas where Circus workshops offer great opportunities for curriculum enrichment.
These are just some of the benefits to be gained from Circus skills workshops. We encourage all these and more whilst always remembering..... CIRCUS SKILLS ARE FUN!

Circus Sensible have been teaching and performing circus skills in schools and at all sorts of venues in St Albans, the UK and Ireland for over 25 years. We have a huge amount of experience in working with many different groups of all ages and abilities.

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


Hi Clive, Just wanted to thank you and your team (Jon, James, Neil) for our school event on 18th July. It was amazing and everyone really enjoyed it. We were talking about it at our management meeting and hope to re-book when we have raised enough money for next year.
Your team especially made it an excellent day - huge thanks. - Patsy Jeeves, Wroughton Junior School in Swindon

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


Just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic workshop last week. The girls were totally absorbed and you had them eating out of your hand. You really are one of a kind! You were fantastic with the children you had a tone that kept them involved but allowed them to have fun. You had their respect from the beginning. The best night in ages! Thank you and we hope to see you again soon.
