  • “Just to thank you for an AMAZING circus day yesterday. The children and staff had a fantastic time. The enjoyment and buzz around school throughout the day was inspiring."
  • “OMG!! What a day!! Kyle, Obby and Neil were absolutely AMAZING. The kids had a brilliant day, every single one of them was smiling.  Your guys were such a friendly bunch and very professional“

  • “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“

  • “Mr Sensible was fantastic. The children were captivated and found his show amazing and hilarious!“

  • “ 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!!! “

  • “It was a shear joy to see the children so engaged and enthusiastic about the event“
  • “Easy to book and totally reliable, I can't praise them enough!“

  • “Two amazing gentlemen, 1 amazing day. Thank you“

  • “Just wanted to say how wonderful The Big Top and all your team were for us on Saturday at Muncaster Castle. All our children and families had an amazing day and absolutely loved the Big Top and everything that went with it. Once again, thank you a million“

  • “Professional, flexible, funny and extremely talented they engaged children and adults alike“

  • “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“

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.

Why book Circus Sensible 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.
The Circus sensible van on it
Circus skills also help develop and improve concentration skills. This is particularly evident in those children with shorter attention spans. When we run Circus 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 in schools 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 Skills workshops in Schools are suitable for Nursery, Primary, Secondary Schools and Colleges and can be integrated into many areas of the School curriculum. All our staff are very experienced and have CRB certificates. We have full Public Liability Insurance and can supply Risk Assessments on request. Circus Sensible also run many other workshops in schools, such as Percussion workshops, African Dance workshops and Magic workshops.
"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."

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.)


Hi Clive
Thanks so much for your fantastic team today. I'm a little worried I didn't look after them with refreshments very well as it was a bit manic at feeding time so please pass in my apologies. They did a great job with about 50 kids and helped raise nearly £200 for dr barnardos as cassie collects coins instead of gifts.
Many thanks for another great memorable event :) - Lisa Jane Kiff, Redbourne Recreation Centre, Herts.

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


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.
