Secondary School Workshops

Secondary schools students spend many of their years preparing for their exams. Circus workshops can help equip the students with confidence in approaching their studies by helping them develop their concentration. Our trainers will also focus more on collaborative tricks and skills as well as individual ones.

Circus skills are also excellent for students who dislike or lack confidence in traditional sports. It’s frequently not the sportiest pupils that grasp juggling or plate spinning the quickest! The variety of equipment taught in our workshops really levels the playing field allowing every student to succeed at something new. Logic and listening skills are just as key as co-ordination.

Where some students don’t perform well at athletics and competitive sports, circus skills can help gently improve their physicality whilst distracting them from feeling self-conscious. It isn’t necessary to change into sporting attire to participate. Our workshops particularly beneficial to students who find it difficult to engage in extra-curricular activities.

Educational Benefits

The benefits of circus skills workshops to secondary school children include:

Cognitive benefits
Cognitive benefits – playful behaviour has a positive effect on the brain and the ability to learn. A stimulating environment can enrich a student’s mind.
Listening skills
Listening skills – students quickly discover a direct correlation between listening carefully to detailed instructions and the success in achieving a new trick. Results are visual and immediate.
Imagination and creativity
Imagination and creativity – once the students get to grips with the fundamentals of the circus equipment they are able to explore their own creativity. This can be in the form of structured play and the creation of routines.

We have several ways we can structure the day with secondary pupils depending on your aims and needs. From working intensively with just one class, or year group for the day, to a whole school activity with shorter taster sessions class by class.
