For weekdays, we start with a 60 minute Show in the 'baby' Big Top for the whole school, followed by circus skills workshops in the Big Top AND in the School hall for up to 35 students at a time. To end the day we can all get together in the Circus Tent again so that the children can show off their new skills.

transition days and PTA fundraising events, we perform up to 3 Comedy Circus Shows in the Big Top whilst an ongoing drop in Circus Workshop is running outside. PTA fundraisers click here.
All we need for a Big Top day is a piece of well drained grass with no underground pipes or cables and with direct access for our van. We arrive about 2 hours before the start of the day to set up.
We have three sizes of tent, 9m, 11m and 15m diameters. Our largest will hold up to 300.

PS: We don't have any Clowns with painted faces, so the children or teachers with clown phobias will be happy!

For all ages

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, 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. Circus Sensible also run many other workshops in schools, such as Percussion workshops, African Dance workshops, Caricature workshops and Magic workshops. For details of all our Schools workshops 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.
Read more
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!
For Fundraisers in schools, Parties, Festivals. Tent hire also available.


Recent Scientific research has shown the value of Circus Skills in schools. 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 physical performance skills in schools.

Circus workshops 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 again for a brilliant day, the children and teachers are still talking about how great it was" - Liz Collins, Applecroft Primary, Welwyn Garden City, Herts.

"What can I say but what a truly wonderfully entertaining day today thanks to your 3 performers.
They really were a breath of fresh air and their energy, enthusiasm was boundless and the audience from our littlest right through to the teachers just thought it was superb and pitched just perfectly." Lisa Lister, Hilden Oaks School, Tonbridge, Kent

“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.

“Thanks for giving the children and teachers a great morning. Jon was fantastic he was able to hold the attention of even the youngest children the whole time, and teachers were able to relax and enjoy the show and workshop. There were activities that all ages of children could try.” - Fiona, Kadampa Primary School, Burton on Trent, Staffordshire

“WOW, what amazing day we had from start to finish. Jon, Neil and Rosie arrived on time and were amazing. The children absolutely loved them and the warm bubbly personalities.
The feedback we have had from children, staff and parents has been outstanding. with one child saying " This was the best day of his life and he will never forget it"
Thank you so much we will be booking you again.” - Alan Mulholland, Wharton Primary School, Winsford, Cheshire.

“Pete and Gary that came to school today were fantastic! Professional, flexible, funny and extremely talented they engaged children and adults alike and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day as well as learned to do something new.
I will be highly recommending Circus Sensible to colleagues.” - Louise Keenan, St. Bede’s Primary, County Durham

“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.

"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.

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)

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!

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.

Dear all at Circus Sensible,
Thank you so much for such a fun filled day! All of the children really enjoyed the workshops and our visitor James was brilliant! The children are still chanting "James Sensible" down the corridors! James was extremely engaging and all involved were really impressed by him. Thanks again for your expertise! Will definitely recommend the company! - Charlotte Harvey, Lakenheath Primary school, 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

I just want to say a very big thank you for the excellent day of circus skills that you provided for our year 3/4 children today. The organisation and timing of the day was smooth and appropriate. The activities that you provided were enjoyed fully by all of the children (and teachers!). As one of their teachers, I recognised that you brought out confidence and motivation in all of the children and at all times you were in control of their behaviour and their learning. Your rapport with the children was lovely to watch.
The children thoroughly enjoyed all of the activities including juggling, plate spinning and feather balancing. It was also great that they had the opportunity to have a go at other activities too.
I would highly recommend you and I have passed your details to one of our senior leaders for future events. - Cath Lawton, St Gregory's Catholic Academy, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire

Hi Clive,
Apologies for this belated email. I just wanted to say a big thank you to Tim and Obi for the wonderful sessions they gave the children on November 8th. We were all really impressed by their professionalism and skill - both as circus performers and teachers. The children were mesmerised and we had the perfect start to our unit. Please convey my gratitude to them.
Best regards, - Damien Keene, Lion Academy Trust

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 thank both Juan and yourself for a fantastic circus experience at our school. Despite appalling weather, Juan arrived and gave us an awesome demonstration to the school, before engaging in workshops all day. The sessions were well resourced and matched to all children's ability and confidence levels. His instructions and demonstrations made it really easy for everyone to understand and it was great to hear many children shout "Miss, I did it!" Thank you for a great experience, our school wouldn't hesitate to book you in the future and recommend you to other local schools.
- Lyndsey Thomas, Hardwick Community Primary School, Banbury, Oxon

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 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

Thank you so very much for a wonderful day and evening at St Paul's Primary School in Hereford. The children had a truly wonderful day and have been buzzing about it ever since. Please do pass our sincere thanks to the rest of your team; it was a real pleasure to have you all here for the day. I hope we will be in touch in the future for another booking.
Rachel Read, Friends of St Paul's Primary School, Hereford

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 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 invited Circus Sensible (and their big top) for a group of 11-18 year olds and the day was throroughly enjoyed - including by some teenaged circus sceptics! The company was very flexible with what was offered (we had a juggling workshop, african drums, and two multi-activity sessions), were great with the kids (and the teachers - we were used to demonstrate some activities) and I would certainly invite them back again. - Jenna Farthing, Oakwood School, Kent.

Hi Clive! You came to my school yesterday (Holy family) I just wanted to say thanks for such a fun time! If you saw me i was the girl with the pink nose and navy and spotty dress! It was really fun! Thanks again Circus Sensible! - Aleksandra, aged 10
